Nunavut Names Preferred Proponent for Airport Project

Posted on July 8, 2013

The Government of Nunavut has found a preferred proponent for the design, financing, construction, operation, and maintenance of the Iqaluit International Airport Improvement Project. The project will be partially funded by P3 Canada.

Following a request for proposals and a stringent evaluation process, the Nunavut Government decided on Arctic Infrastructure Partners as their preferred partners. The hope is that materials and equipment for the project can be delivered during the 2013 airlift season, with construction slated to begin in spring 2014. The government has pegged late 2017 as a hopeful completion date.

The Airport Improvement Plan includes a new airport building; expanded aprons for planes to park; new lighting systems; an upgraded runway; and a new combined services building that will house the fire-fighting vehicles/support equipment and the heavy equipment that main the runways and aprons, according to a Government of Nunavut press release.

Included in the Arctic Infrastructure Partners group are InfraRed Capital Partners, Bouygues Building Canada Inc., Colas Canada Inc., and the Winnipeg Airports Authority.
