Maple Reinders is the proud recipient of a Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships (CCPPP) National Award for Innovation & Excellence. The City of Calgary Compost Facility, delivered by Chinook Resource Management Group, a special purpose company of which Maple Reinders PPP Ltd. is a partner, won the Silver Award for Infrastructure. Awards were announced at the annual CCPPP National Conference on November 6, 2017 in Toronto, Ontario.
The CCPPP National Awards were established in 1998 to celebrate public and private sector partners who have demonstrated a standard of excellence and have improved the efficiency and quality of public services and facilities. The awards are presented annually in four categories: project financing, service delivery, infrastructure investment and other. The Calgary Compost Facility is the first composting facility to be delivered under the P3 model in Canada and it is also the largest of its kind in North America.
"The Canadian P3 model has a reputation around the world as best-in-class, so to have our Calgary Compost Facility be recognized as a leader amongst all of the innovative P3 projects across the country is a tremendous honour," said Harold Reinders, President & COO of Maple Reinders Constructors Ltd. "We thank all of our partners that helped us deliver this project, and we must also acknowledge the City of Calgary for their vision and commitment to sustainability."
