APM Opens new French School

Dec 9 2011

CHARLOTTETOWN – APM joined government officials and community leaders for the grand opening of Ecole St-Augustin on December 8, 2011. The school, located in South Rustico, was design-built by APM.

APM competed to win the project against many other pre-qualified bidders from across Atlantic Canada.

APM President Duane Lamont took an active role in this project and is pleased with how it turned out.

“This is the most cost effective school that the province has built in recent years,” said Mr. Lamont. “We delivered this project on time and on budget so we’re more than satisfied to present the finished product at great value to the province. It was also a great opportunity to employ many Island subtrade companies and the great talented tradespeople they had to offer.

Jerry LeBlanc, Development Manager says that it was a pleasure to design-build this school. According to Mr. LeBlanc, the job went smoothly.

“Our engineers and designers worked well in partnership with the province to integrate accents of Acadian and local culture into the school’s design,” says Mr. LeBlanc. “This is a great example of APM’s focus on partnerships between the client, the contractor, the designers, and the subcontractors.”

“Together, we’ve created a very unique and exceptional school for the community of South Rustico. APM is a long-time advocate of education on Prince Edward Island and when this opportunity came along, we were very pleased to be awarded the contract.”
