PROJECTS

18 Elementary Schools

The Saskatchewan Government is building 18 new elementary schools on nine new joint-use schools sites in four communities experiencing unprecedented growth: Saskatoon, Regina, Warman and Martensville.  The new schools will be ready in time for students in September 2017.

In partnership with the Ministry of Education and the five involved school divisions, SaskBuilds is pursuing leading a design-build-finance-maintain public-private partnership (P3) procurement model.  The new schools will be fully owned and operated by the school divisions.
