Graham wins contract for specialized long-term care facility

Graham has secured the Early Contractor Involvement Contract for the new Regina Specialized Long-Term Care project.

Graham has been awarded the Early Contractor Involvement Contract for the new Regina Specialized Long-Term Careproject.

The Progressive Design Build Agreement allows the government to enter a contract with a single proponent for the design and construction of this project but also provides an “off-ramp” if the government is unable to conclude negotiations with Graham at an acceptable price for the build. 

“Our government is committed to providing seniors and other residents in long-term care with safe and comfortable spaces to live,” Minister Responsible for Seniors Tim McLeod said. “We are investing $20 million this year to further advance work on the future 240-bed Specialized Long-Term Care Home in Regina. I look forward to these additional long-term care spaces being available to support the needs of residents requiring specialized care.”

The Regina Specialized LTC Home is expected to be built as a multi-story building designed to create a home-like environment with individual rooms featuring ensuite bathrooms and indoor and outdoor multipurpose spaces. More details will be shared once the design is finalized.

The new home will be built on a site owned by the Government of Saskatchewan, located south of the Saskatchewan Polytechnic Regina Campus. The Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) will own and operate the facility.

This specialized LTC home will focus on caring for individuals with dementia, cognitive and acquired brain injuries, and other complex behavioral needs.

Graham Construction noted that it’s team has a strong history of delivering medical facility projects in Saskatchewan, including the Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital in Moose Jaw, the Southwest Integrated Health Care Facility in Maple Creek, the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital in Saskatoon, and the recently completed Regina Urgent Care Centre.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with the Government of Saskatchewan to deliver the new Regina Specialized Long-Term Care Home as a local contractor. Projects like this are immensely significant to us, and we take great pride in positively impacting our province and communities,” said Brad Kornum, Graham Construction district manager.

Design will commence immediately, and construction is anticipated to begin in early 2025.
