March 5th, 2021 – The Town of Edson, Yellowhead County, and Project Manger Turnbull Construction, are moving to the next stage of development for the Joint Recreation Multi-Use Facility.
Today, a Request for Expressions of Interest (RFEOI) was posted for Design Build Contractors.
The RFEOI is to gain interest and prequalify dedicated teams to provide Design-Build services for the new facility. Prequalified Design-Build contractors will then have the opportunity to go through a robust design process and to submit their work to be evaluated by the partnership group.
The Design-Build method is meant to save time and cost, as well as to garner multiple designs for consideration. Teams with unsuccessful designs do receive a stipend for their participation.
This is an exciting step forward for this joint project and both municipalities remain committed to moving this project forward within the approved $70 million dollar budget.
