FSC Architects and Engineers has won the contract to design the new FH Collins High School.

The contract’s price – just under $3 million – exceeds the $2.7 million the territory earmarked for the project this year. But part of the work will be paid for in later fiscal years, states a news release.

Seventeen proposals were submitted for the contract. FSC’s bid stood out, in part, because of the company’s experience building schools across Canada’s northern territories.

FH Collins opened in 1963, making it Whitehorse’s oldest school. More than 6,000 students have graduated from it. Currently more than 600 students are enrolled there.
