About the entity

Aecon safely, profitably and sustainably delivers integrated services and solutions.


Aecon Group announced that Graham-Aecon Joint Venture, a 50/50 consortium between Aecon and Graham Construction, has been awarded a $273 million design-build contract by the Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Corporation (BPWTC) for the Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Plant Renewal Project near Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. Aecon’s share of the contract will be added to its Construction segment backlog in the second quarter of 2022.

The scope of work includes demolition, earthworks, structural fabrication, electrical and instrumentation work, and the construction of concrete foundations and commercial buildings to deliver both new and retrofitted infrastructure. The upgrades will modernize technology, improve residual water management practices and increase the capacity of the facility. Construction is expected to commence in the second quarter of 2022, with anticipated completion in the second quarter of 2025.

The plant serves the cities of Regina and Moose Jaw, SaskWater, and the Buffalo Pound Provincial Park, which supplies water to many communities in the region. In total, the plant supplies water to over 260,000 people.

“The Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Plant has been integral in providing reliable, safe and high-quality water to surrounding communities for decades and this critical project will ensure the facility has the capacity to meet the needs of growing populations,” said Jean-Louis Servranckx, President and Chief Executive Officer, Aecon Group Inc. “We look forward to working with our client and partner as we bring our industry-leading industrial and water infrastructure expertise to deliver this sustainable project.”
