Eagle Ridge Schools and Community Centre, Fort McMurray, AB

Location: Fort McMurray, AB
Delivery Method: Design-Build
Status: Completed August 2015

Project Description

Jen-Col’s largest single contract to date, the Eagle Ridge Schools and Community Centre was tendered as a Design-Build by the Government of Alberta as part of the ASAP III Program in the Eagle Ridge community of Fort McMurray. The 11,000 m2 facility includes a public school, catholic school and community centre. This project includes a large sitework component including soil export, landscaping, paving and modular classrooms. The project successfully achieved LEED Silver certification.

Jen-Col utilized our strong working relationship and understanding of the requirements of the school boards, to recommend various strategies to Alberta Infrastructure that took into account student safety while making recommendations for revising the project delivery from a single to a phased opening approach. By putting ourselves in the School Board’s position, we were able to restructure and reschedule the project sufficiently to allow for both schools to open for the 2014/2015 school season at almost full capacity while construction continued on the project.
