A Request for Qualifications (RFQ) has been issued by the Alberta government for the construction of 19 new schools in nine different communities to be built as public-private partnerships.

A Request for Qualifications (RFQ) has been issued by the Alberta government for the construction of 19 new schools in nine different communities to be built as public-private partnerships.

The RFQ will identify and shortlist three proponents to enter into the Request for Proposals (RFP) phase.

The RFP is expected to be issued in the fall of 2013 with an award to a design-build-finance-maintenance consortium in the summer of 2014.

These new schools, which are expected to provide up to 13,400 spaces, are part of a bundle of 24 new schools that were announced by Premier Alison Redford in May.

The remainder of the schools announced in May will be built using traditional methods. Eight schools will be built through four design-build bundles, as well as two modernizations through individual design-bid-build procurement. The new schools will feature large windows that provide natural lighting, as well as ventilation systems that improve air quality and circulation.

The projects in this first bundle are expected to be completed in 2016.

The Alberta government is investing $503 million over three years to support the delivery of new school projects within Alberta’s high-growth communities.
