Block Party for Joint-Use Schools

Released on June 19, 2017

Local masonry companies gathered today to celebrate the upcoming completion of the province’s joint-use schools.  Block and stone elements form part of each school, all of it produced and put in place by Saskatchewan businesses.

“We built these schools for the kids, first and foremost, but job creation is always a factor when we fund capital projects,” Regina Gardiner Park MLA Gene Makowsky said on behalf of Minister Responsible for SaskBuilds Gordon Wyant.  “With low oil prices right now, construction projects are particularly important to our economy.”

“These schools employed a lot of people when it was needed most,” Saskatchewan Masonry Institute President Rob Walchuk said.  “Locally supplying and installing that much block makes for a huge economic impact on our industry and the province.  We’re thrilled to give back to our own communities with beautiful, state-of-the-art schools.”

While schools are made slightly differently on each site, masonry work can be found in hallways, gymnasiums, classrooms, and as part of the general building envelope.

The celebration event was held at the Regina office of Brxton Masonry, who worked on the Rosewood and Warman sites.

Contractors are now putting the finishing touches on schools that will be handed over to divisions in a matter of weeks.
