Great Plains College cancels power lab facility project

December 9, 2009

Saskatchewan-based Great Plains College announced this week it will not proceed with a project involving the development of a power engineering training laboratory on a site adjacent to the former Swift Current Hospital. The college cites the $2.8-million price tag to develop the facility as the reason for the change of plans. The school acquired the facility in 2007, and will now turn it back to the City of Swift Current. Demolition of the power lab site will now take place to allow area re-development to go forward. The college will remain busy with its current campus renovation project. Southwest Booster
