Released on February 29, 2016

“I hear every day how meaningful the new SHNB will be to our community,” Environment Minister and The Battlefords MLA Herb Cox said.  “I applaud all our Saskatchewan companies for working hard to keep construction on schedule.  The new facility will mean so much to patients and their families.”

To date, the project has already involved 11 local businesses.  The project is expected to create approximately 1,500 construction-related jobs in Saskatchewan:
  1. North Battleford - Clifton Assoc. – geotechnical services
  2. North Battleford - G&C Asphalt – concrete supply
  3. Saskatoon – Ardel Steel – rebar supply
  4. Saskatoon – D-Code Engineering Ltd. – code consultant
  5. Saskatoon – Global Empire Reinforcing – rebar installation
  6. Saskatoon – Graham Construction – design builder
  7. Saskatoon – Nordic Fence – fencing and gates to site boundary
  8. Saskatoon – Pavement Scientific International Inc. – earthworks
  9. Saskatoon – P. Machibroda Engineering Ltd. – geotechnical investigation
  10. Saskatoon – William Scotsman – project office supply
  11. Saskatoon – WSP Canada Inc. – mechanical/electrical/IMIT services
The new publicly owned and operated 284-bed facility will have 32 more beds than the existing hospital.  The new facility will consist of 188 beds replacing the current 156-bed hospital and 96 secure beds for male and female offenders living with mental health issues.  The two populations will remain separate, as will their programming and treatment.

This is an innovative approach for delivering mental health care and supports to two separate groups of people with significant psychiatric rehabilitation needs.
