The City of Lloydminster is awarding a contract to PCL Construction Management Inc. for the construction management of Lloydminster Place.
Council approved the contract at its June 6th session. The contract is part of a greater budget of $57 million for the new event facility. The City continues to seek provincial and federal funding avenues to support the facility.
City planners say PCL’s bid will have Bexson Construction Ltd. as a construction partner. They see Bexson’s involvement during construction as increasing the local economic impact with the potential for local sub-trade involvement.
“PCL Construction Management’s commitment to working with local companies not only significantly boosts our economy through job creation and product sales, but will also create training opportunities for those coming through the trades,” says Mayor Gerald Aalbers.
The mayor indicated that they are now at “the starting point to discuss the physical construction of Lloydminster Place after working with the design firm, TBD Architecture, since mid-2021.”
The request for proposal process was open from April 27 to May 18, 2022. Five proposals were submitted, one of which did not meet the minimum technical requirements, according to administration.
