The Saint John Parking Commission accepted the lowest bid tendered for the construction of the Carleton Street parking garage Monday morning in a special meeting.
PCL Constructors Canada Inc.’s tender, $16,546,400, was the lowest bid of nine qualified bids accepted at the tender opening on Wednesday, December 15.
“The bids were in range with our projections, and very competitive with each other,” said Councillor Chris Titus, chair of the Saint John Parking Commission. “The Parking Commission is pleased to have PCL Constructors Canada on board as our partner.”
Construction of the garage, which is funded in part by the Province of New Brunswick as part of the Peel Plaza justice complex, is expected to start in late January or early February. The seven-level garage will have 446 spaces, with entrances and exits from Carleton Street and Sewell Street, across from Harbour Station.
