E. H Walter School â€“ Project Approved for Go Ahead!
Alberta Education has provided formal written approval of the Buffalo Trail Public School request to accept the tender submitted by OML Construction to build the E.H. Walter New Replacement School!
This formal approval identifies OML Construction Services Ltd. as the successful general contractor. OML Construction provides construction management, design-build, and general contracting services to a broad range of clients in Western Canada. As a reliable and trusted Edmonton construction firm, they combine their experience with new technologies and client-focused service to deliver solid project results. OML is eager to get started and looks forward to being a part of this exciting project. “The school and the community are very excited,” says Board Chair Darcy Eddleston, “We are pleased the Government has given formal approval and are all eagerly anticipating the new school! We are all looking forward to seeing construction begin!” While there is no activity on the site just yet, work on the new school has already begun with procuring of all sub-trades, producing and getting design consultant approval of all shop drawings and selecting firms to provide building materials.
OML Construction is also scheduling the construction of the project so that it will move along at a pace designed to meet the September 2016 opening. “We are excited to be working with OML on this project. It is unique in that it is the collective vision of the Board, the school, and the community in providing a facility that will serve the needs of the community for years to come,” states Superintendent, Bob Allen. “The approval from The Learning Facilities Division of Alberta Infrastructure is another important step in bringing this project to fruition.” The Board of Trustees of BTPS is an ardent supporter of rural schools and works very hard to make sure that our schools are a part of the overall capital plan.
