MERIT Monday
The Barn at Wind's Edge
Have you taken a look at The Barn at Wind’s Edge?! This exciting new event centre, located just minutes from Saskatoon, is the perfect venue for any celebration you can imagine! We had the pleasure of speaking with Rhonda Hipperson of Hipperson Construction who were the General Contractors for this Saskatchewan proud project.
As Hipperson Construction’s first event centre build, they couldn’t have asked for a better project to get their feet wet. The Barn at Wind’s Edge event centre, located just outside Saskatoon, is a positive story for Saskatchewan’s economy, not only for its investment in local entertainment but also for job creation. At the peak of construction, there were 36 workers on site with 25 Saskatoon sub-contractors working together to bring this project to life. This tendered job began in April of 2018 and will take 10 months to complete.

Rhonda Hipperson of Hipperson Construction spoke of the project owners’ high level of involvement during the build and their enthusiasm and excitement as the project proceeded. 
The extent of design details and quality high-end finishes in the building set it apart from many others. In Kris Ross', Hipperson Construction's Project Manager, words, “It’s been a great experience for the workers and sub-trades to witness the owner’s excitement as their vision becomes a reality”.

This event centre will be a part of the Saskatoon landscape for years to come, and we’re excited that a MERIT member played a part in its creation!
