Contract awarded to build main part of Saskatchewan children's hospital

SASKATOON — An Edmonton company has been awarded the contract to construct the main building of the Children’s Hospital of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon.

The contract with Graham Construction and Engineering LP is worth $214 million.

The Saskatoon Regional Health Authority says it approved the contract that was recommended by the Health Ministry.

The hospital is expected to be open in late 2019 — 10 months later than previously scheduled.

The Children's Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan needs to raise another $25 million for the $285-million project.

The next phase of construction is to begin next month.
