New Joint-Use Schools Project Moves Forward

Released on July 31, 2014

The Government of Saskatchewan is moving forward with a public-private partnership (P3) model to build 18 new schools on nine joint-use sites in the high growth communities of Martensville, Regina, Saskatoon and Warman.  The government worked in partnership with the five involved school divisions to gather input and the details needed to reach this decision.

“Financial analysis, conducted by external experts, demonstrated that a P3 model will deliver the best value for Saskatchewan taxpayers,” Minister responsible for SaskBuilds Gordon Wyant said.  “Our industry consultations indicate there is local and national interest in the projects and this competition will help drive innovation and savings.”

The Province is issuing one Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for two bundles of schools: one bundle of three schools in Regina, and one bundle of six schools in Martensville (one school), Saskatoon (four schools) and Warman (one school).  The schools will be built using a design-build-finance-maintain P3 model.

“We look forward to receiving submissions from highly qualified teams able to drive design innovation and efficiencies that build upon the input of students, teachers, parents and other community members gathered through the collaborative design process,” Wyant said.

The schools’ capital construction cost and final value for money will be determined through the procurement process and released at the end of procurement.  Releasing this information sooner would compromise the Province’s negotiating position.

Following the close of the RFQ in September 2014 and evaluation of the submissions, a shortlist of no more than three proponents will be invited to proceed to the Request for Proposal (RFP) stage currently planned for release in fall 2014.

The schools will be fully owned and operated by the public sector.  Construction is scheduled to begin in summer 2015 and be complete before the start of school in September 2017.

The RFQ will be posted to SaskTenders and the SaskBuilds website,
