Picture of the productEnergy Services Acquisition Program (ESAP/ESM)

Detailed case study of the Energy Services Acquisition Program (ESAP)/Energy Service Modernization (ESM) Project, the 2020 Gold Award for Project Development winner.

This ambitious $1.8-billion initiative is modernizing energy centres in five locations — some of which date back almost a century — to provide heating and/or cooling for 80 buildings in the nation’s capital, including Parliament. The upgrades will lower operating costs for taxpayers and help reduce the Canadian government’s energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. This design build-finance-operate P3 is set to reach substantial completion in 2025, followed by 30 years of operations and maintenance. The awards committee noted the project is complex because it involves the private sector mitigating risks from federal and interprovincial brownfield construction, six years of interim operations during construction, as well as factoring in protections for heritage assets. It also has built in flexibility to potentially expand the modernized district energy system to other public and private buildings in the region.

This 36-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.

Picture of the productP3s and Community Benefits Agreements in Canada
Since they first emerged in Los Angeles in 2001, Community Benefits Agreements (CBAs) have been designed to share the benefits of infrastructure more widely — literally from the ground up. This report focuses on CBAs used on infrastructure projects in Canada and abroad with an overview of similar socio-economic advancement policies used in Canada. The Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships collaborated with Constructive Edge to prepare this 25-page report, which is available in a downloadable PDF format. Published January 2021.

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 productStoney CNG Bus Storage and Transit Facility

Detailed case study of the Stoney CNG Bus Storage and Transit Facility, the 2019 Silver Award for Infrastructure winner.

This gigantic facility near the Calgary International Airport can hold 424 standard 12-metre (40-foot) buses with overflow space for 50 more buses. It is the largest indoor compressed natural gas bus fuelling complex in North America and one of the largest in the world. But not only are the buses using greenhouse gas reducing technology, the facility itself marries cutting-edge technology and environmental design features such as a top-down ventilation design that safely and efficiently removes air contaminants.

This 28-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, innovative features, risk allocation, benefits, communications, dispute resolution, 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.
