The town’s elected officials have awarded the construction tender for the new fire hall to a construction firm after an exhaustive search.
It took two separate request for proposals (RFP) processes to find a builder for the fire hall. The most recent efforts by the town have resulted in a construction tender going to Quorex Construction Ltd., a contracting firm based out of Saskatoon.
Council passed a resolution at a meeting on Sept. 10 to award the project to Quorex Construction based on the adjudicated results of the town’s fire hall design-build RFP. The town had previously put out a build-to-design RFP, but a miscommunication between the designer and an engineering firm caused too much confusion and a second RFP had to be published.
The proposed tender price for the fire hall is nearly $2.82 million. According to a town official, Quorex Construction has been involved in several design-build projects including fire hall projects at Val Marie and CFB Dundurn.This content is for members only.
