ABC Schools Partnership
In May 2011, the Government of Alberta announced it was investing in 35 new school projects benefitting some of Alberta’s fastest-growing communities. As part of this investment, a bundle of 12 new schools, creating up to 7,700 new spaces for Alberta students, will be built using a public-private partnership (P3) approach. This P3 approach will deliver the schools up to two years earlier than through traditional methods and will save Alberta taxpayers about $43 million. This school infrastructure project aligns with the government’s commitment to building Alberta’s economic future, and investing in families and communities.
Following a competitive bidding process and rigorous evaluation, the Alberta government awarded the contract to ABC Schools Partnership. The project includes the design, build, finance and 30-year maintenance of the new schools, which are scheduled to be completed in June 2014 and ready to open for the 2014/2015 school year.
