Brightenview breaks ground at GTH

Brightenview Development International Inc. has announced construction on a $45 million project at the Global Transportation Hub (GTH), which will bring new international tenants and increased trade activity to Saskatchewan. PCL Construction Management Inc. broke ground to begin the first two buildings of a planned six-building complex at the GTH.

Brightenview’s Global Trade Exhibition Centre (GTEC) will become a home to small- and medium-sized manufacturers and entrepreneurs from Asia, who will establish businesses in Saskatchewan as a base to sell into the North American market. When fully developed, as many as 300 businesses will reside in GTEC with a projected business capital investment of over $200 million.

“Today is an important moment as we are witnessing a company that shares our vision of Saskatchewan being a global transportation hub that can effectively and efficiently distribute goods throughout North America and the world,” said Rhonda Ekstrom, VP, Business Development at the GTH. “For decades we have heard governments talk about increasing trade opportunities with Asia and that is what we are celebrating today with this announcement by Brightenview.”

For decades we have talked about increasing our province’s trade opportunities with Asia and that is what we are celebrating today with this announcement by Brightenview."
