Regina to choose from construction trio

Comments Off on Regina to choose from construction trio

The City of Regina has shortlisted Bouygues Construction Graham Community Partners, Clark Builders-Turner Construction, and PCL Construction Management to move into the Request For Proposals (RFP) phase.

Brent Sjoberg, deputy city manager and CFO told a news conference:

We’re right on track in terms of our schedule. These three firms submit materials and part of that is submitting their design and demonstrating to us what it delivers, what are the features, what is the cost.

The council is looking to have the site clear by the end of the year so that the chosen contractor can move ahead immediately in 2014. The Saskatchewan Roughriders will start their 2017 season in the new facility.
