Concert Infrastructure inks five-school P3 contract with Alberta
PROVINCE OF ALBERTA — A rendering shows the conceptual design for Leduc High School which is one of five schools that has been awarded under a bundled P3 contract in Alberta.

EDMONTON, ALTA. — Concert Infrastructure recently announced it has inked a P3 contract with Alberta to build five schools.

Concert, the lead investor and manager of Concert-Bird Partners, was selected as the preferred proponent in late July after a two-staged procurement process. The team includes Concert Infrastructure Ltd., Bird Capital Limited Partnership, Bird Design-Build Construction Inc., Wright Construction Western Inc., BR2 Architecture and Ainsworth Inc.

The project scope includes designing, building, financing and maintaining five high schools with a capacity of 7,000 students. The schools will be in Leduc, Blackfalds, Langdon and two in Edmonton. Work on the schools is expected to wrap in 2024. The designs for each school will include sustainability and energy efficiency to target LEED Silver Certification.

“Concert is excited to continue its strong and collaborative relationship with the Government of Alberta and deliver these critically-needed schools to meet the demands of growing communities. We are extremely proud to continue Concert’s legacy as a community builder, building a people-first future through the delivery of critical public infrastructure,” said Derron Bain, managing director of Concert Infrastructure, in a statement. “Together with our primary partners, Bird Construction, Wright Construction and Ainsworth, we have a proven track record of success in the P3 market, particularly in the delivery of multi-site school projects in the province.”

The high schools will be owned and operated by their respective school jurisdictions and delivered through the P3 model under a 30-year design-build-finance-maintain contract.
