Winner for Canada road P3

A preferred bidder has been chosen for the Northwest Territories' Tlicho All Season Road P3 project.

Northwest Territories Finance Minister Robert C McLeod announced that the North Star Infrastructure consortium has been chosen to deliver the scheme.

North Star Infrastructure comprises Kiewit as the equity provider, design-builder and service provider, with Hatch Corporation and Thurber Engineering acting as the design team.

The consortium was one of three teams to submit proposals toward the end of 2017 and has beaten off competition from a Graham Capital Partners and Colas Canada team, as well as a consortium comprising Eiffage, North American Construction Group and LaPrairie Works.

Northwest Territories and North Star will now work towards financial close, with construction due to begin in Fall 2019, once preparatory work is completed.
