Construction on a handful of new Alberta schools will get underway this summer as part of the province’s boost in infrastructure funding announced earlier this month.

The province anticipates launching the request for proposal stage of procurement April 30 and wants to have teams in place to take on the projects by September.

“Continued investment in public infrastructure projects like the construction of these five schools is an integral part of the government’s economic stimulus package to invest in needed infrastructure and get Albertans back to work,” Prasad Panda, Alberta’s minister of Infrastructure, said in a release.

Two years of construction on the five schools will cost approximately $100 million and create 560 jobs, the province said.

Four of the five new schools — in Cochrane, Legal and Edmonton (2) — will house kindergarten to grade 9 students. The final school in Calgary is designed for kindergarten to grade 4 students.
