MONCTON, N.B. – New Brunswick’s minister of Transportation and Infrastructure says they’re not cutting corners when it comes to the construction of the new Moncton High School.
Foulem Construction of Caraquet has been awarded the tender for the project which came in under budget at $27.4 million.
Despite the discrepency minister Claude Williams says everything that was originally scheduled to be a part of the project, including a theatre, will be there.
“With due diligence and also with the competitive construction market we’ve been able to achieve approximately $11 million in savings.”
Williams says he isn’t sure yet what the government will do with the money they’ve saved, but the cash may be spent on other projects or put towards addressing the province’s fiscal situation.
The school, to be built just off Elmwood Drive, is expected to be open in the fall of 2014.
