GRENFELL, SASK. — Three teams are moving to the Request for Proposals (RFP) stage of procurement for the new Grenfell Long-Term Care (LTC) Home in Grenfell, Sask.
Six teams responded to the Province of Saskatchewan’s Request for Qualifications issued Oct. 6. The three teams moving to the RFP stage are PCL Construction and G. Architects, Graham Design Builders and Stantec Architecture Ltd. and Scott Builders and BR2 Architecture.
The new 33-bed home will be built on a vacant parcel of land located in the northeast corner of Grenfell and will be owned and operated by the Saskatchewan Health Authority. It will include private rooms with bathrooms, two spa tub rooms, a commercial kitchen, common living and dining spaces and administrative spaces, a government release stated.
“The new Grenfell LTC home will serve residents from the town of Grenfell and surrounding rural municipalities in a space that encourages residents to gather together, creating a sense of community,” said Saskatchewan Health Authority executive director of integrated rural primary health care Jacqui Kennett-Peppler in a statement.
Residents of the Grenfell Pioneer Home, which closed in 2018, were relocated to nearby facilities and will be offered the first opportunity to move into the new home once it is complete.
The RFP closes on March 2, 2023 at which point a proponent will be selected following the evaluation process.
