Picture of the productGordie Howe International Bridge Project

Detailed case study of the Gordie Howe International Bridge Project, the 2019 Gold Award for Project Financing winner.

This international crossing — which will be the longest cable-stayed bridge in North America and the first new major trade link between the United States and Canada in four decades — represents one of the largest recent private financings of a P3 in Canada with a total project cost of CAD$5.7 billion. The step-up step-down security package provided to lenders is unique and the project is the first Canadian P3 to use a non-traditional foreign exchange risk framework to balance fluctuating currency prices, setting a precedent for future cross-border transactions.

This 30-page case study provides details on the elements that made this project the Gold Award for Financing winner. Information on the project includes: quick facts, procurement process, structure of the agreement, financial arrangements, innovative features, risk allocation, benefits, communications, performance monitoring, lessons learned and partner contacts.

Picture of the productTlicho All-Season Road Project

Detailed case study of the Tlicho All-Season Road Project, the 2019 Gold Award for Project Development winner.

This 97-kilometre all-season gravel highway, which will link the remote northern community of Whatì with its neighbours in the Northwest Territories, is among the first P3s in North America with an Indigenous government that has a cash-funded equity stake in the project. The project is also notable for its unique approach to handling long-term risks related to climate change, which is happening at an unprecedented rate in the North. Its “bespoke climate change risk-sharing regime” uses cutting-edge modelling, enabling the partners to more efficiently price their potential exposure to this risk for long-term operations and maintenance of a road constructed above permafrost.

This 28-page case study provides details on the elements that made this project the Gold Award for Project Development winner. Information on the project includes: quick facts, procurement process, structure of the agreement, financial arrangements, innovative features, risk allocation, benefits, communications, performance monitoring, lessons learned and partner contacts.

Detailed case study of the Fort McMurray West 500-kV Transmission Project, the 2018 Gold Award for Project Financing winner.

This vital power project, stretching 500 kilometres northeast from Edmonton, will increase the capacity and overall reliability of Alberta's transmission system in order to meet booming demand in the Fort McMurray area. This is also the first transmission infrastructure P3 to be procured in Canada. The awards committee commended the project's use of a "unique funding competition that took place after the route for the transmission line was finalized and regulatory approval had been granted, resulting in significant savings for the public." At the time of award, the cost savings were estimated to be more than $400 million - approximately 25 per cent of total capital costs.

Picture of the productNorth Commuter Parkway & Traffic Bridge Project PDF

Detailed case study of the North Commuter Parkway & Traffic Bridge Replacement Project, the 2018 Gold Award for Infrastructure winner.

When Saskatoon residents and civil and Indigenous leaders came together to celebrate the official opening in the fall of 2018, it was clear this project was about more than improved infrastructure and reduced commutes. It was also building a more inclusive community. The new six-lane bridge on the Parkway pays tribute to Chief Mistawasis, the Cree Chief who signed Treaty 6, while the modern steel-truss structure of the rebuilt Traffic Bridge uses complex engineering to preserve its historical character while meeting todayâ€ÿs safety standards. The project is the largest infrastructure project ever delivered in the City of Saskatoon and the first bundled transportation P3 in Canada.

This 29-page case study provides details on the elements that made this project the Gold Award for Infrastructure winner. Information on the project includes: quick facts, innovative features, procurement process, structure of the agreement, financial arrangements, risk allocation, benefits, communications, performance monitoring, lessons learned and partner contacts.

Picture of the productCalgary Composting Facility - Hard Copy

Detailed case study of the Calgary Composting Facility project, the 2017 Silver Award for Infrastructure winner.

The new Calgary Composting Facility, the first P3 composting facility constructed in Canada, will allow the city to divert a minimum of 145,000 tonnes of organics and dewatered biosolids from landfill each year. The three buildings were developed under a unique DBF-OM agreement, which allowed the city to obtain the benefits of fully integrated operations, maintenance and life cycle renewal over 10 years without the cost implications of long-term financing. The project also utilized a P3 performance bond that allowed contractors to overcome the normally onerous capital cost of using traditional securities such as letters of credit to demonstrate liquidity in the event of cost or schedule overruns.

This 30-page case study provides details on the elements that made this project the Silver Award for Infrastructure winner. Information on the project includes: quick facts, procurement process, structure of the agreement, financial arrangements, risk allocation, benefits, communications, labour, monitoring, innovative features, testimonials and partner contacts.
