Value:               $600,000 – Total Build $150,000,000


The Customer:

The Saskatoon Civic Operations Centre (SCOC) is the new home for Saskatoon Transit and the City’s first permanent Snow Management Facility. The city’s first P3 project was completed ahead of schedule and on budget thanks to the expertise and collaboration of a project team comprised of City staff and private development partners. The new 450,000 square foot facility is a model of innovation and efficiency. The state-of-the-art facility is LEED certified, has 27 maintenance bays, quick service, a full body shop including a paint booth, indoor storage for 224 buses, and administrative offices. It was built with the future in mind and will accommodate the fleet expansion expected over the next 10 to 15 years. In the interim, the unused space will be used for general equipment storage.

The Snow Management Facility has the capacity to store up to 1 million cubic metres of snow on a 14 acre concrete pad. When the snow naturally melts, the melt water will run through an oil and grit separator and into a melt water/storm water pond. The melt water will then go through a series of specially designed baffle curtains before being discharged in a controlled fashion into the storm water system.

The Challenge:

The completely new design had to meet the anticipated needs of the users, for safety, security, and efficiency. Multiple long-term service providers had to be coordinated for effective delivery. The overall team had to have a high level of cooperation to deliver on-time uninterrupted service. We had to manage the risk of significant failure-to-deliver penalties that were built in to the contract.  

The Systems Solution:

AESL’s design met the owner’s requirements and helped to reduce the overall budget. The project includes IED GlobalCom ULC listed mass notification with 350 speakers and horns, and ambient noise analysis and control. There are 70 access-controlled doors, 60 HD IP cameras, 24 IP intercoms, help stations, panic alarms, intrusion detection, and reporting to the building automation system. The system is controlled from multiple areas including a nine-screen video wall in the Transit central control.  AESL provides timely and efficient ongoing support and service and delivered on time and within budget.
