Final Project Design and Construction Phases

In 2016, individual Requests for Proposal, on a project-by-project basis, were issued by Alberta Environment and Parks through the Alberta Purchasing Connection for the design and construction of the Tier 1 and Tier 2 FISHES projects. All design contracts were awarded and in place by winter of 2017.

All Tier 1 projects have been finalized and will be tendered for construction in the winter of 2018. Tier 2 projects are in varying stages of design and are anticipated to be issued for tender in 2018.

Construction of FISHES projects is expected to begin in the spring of 2018 and continue through to fall of 2018. Completed projects will be monitored and evaluated to ensure project goals are achieved.
