Project Update:  February 7th, 2019

The 4th Building Committee was held on February 7th, 2019 to review the final results of the design process with positive comments being received.  The Committee was reassured that there has been no indication that the project will be cancelled.  We are still patiently waiting for our Approval to Proceed that was submitted to the Capital Branch of the Ministry of Education in October of 2018 to be approved.

Looking Forward

 Approval To Proceed Received

  • A few weeks will be needed to prepare the tender package.
  • Once the tender package has been issued, contractors will prepare bids.  Due to the size, the tender package must be issued for a minimum of 30 calendar days.
  • Once bids have been received, they will be opened and reviewed by administration and procurement staff.  The review will consist of determining if the bids are on budget and each one will be ranked.
  • The highest ranked on budget bid will be brought forward to the Board for approval.
  • Once approval has been received, a contract will be issued to complete the construction of the project.
