Five Alberta P3 high schools complete construction

Five Alberta P3 high schools complete construction

EDMONTON – Construction is complete on five public-private partnership (P3) high schools in Alberta making room for over 6,900 students.

The Alberta government saved $114.5 million to deliver these the high schools located in Blackfalds, Langdon, Leduc and two in Edmonton, a release said.

The savings are based on the cost compared to deliver the high schools using methods other than the P3 model.

The P3 bundle of five high schools is:

  • Iron Ridge Secondary Campus in Blackfalds, Wolf Creek Public Schools
  • Elder Dr. Francis Whiskeyjack School in Edmonton, Edmonton Public Schools
  • Father Michael McCaffery Catholic High School in Edmonton, Edmonton Catholic Schools
  • Horseshoe Crossing High School in Langdon, Rocky View Schools
  • Ohpaho Secondary School in Leduc, Black Gold School Division

Concert-Bird Partners was awarded the contract for the P3 bundle in 2021, with the lowest bid price of $300.3 million net present value.

Procurement is underway to deliver another bundle of seven new Alberta schools using P3 located in Airdrie, Blackfalds, Calgary, Chestermere, Okotoks and two in Edmonton.

A shortlist of two proponents, qualifying from the Request for Qualifications stage (closed April 29), have been invited to participate in the Request for Proposals stage and a contract with the successful proponent is anticipated to be in place in early 2025, with construction beginning by that summer, the release said.
