The tendering process for the Southeast Event Centre has now begun.  

In fact, Steinbach Operations Manager Paul Penner says the tender went out this past Friday, July, 29th. 

Ever since the project was first announced in July of 2021, Penner has been busy working with designers and engineers. He notes they had initially hoped to go to tender this spring, but the process got pushed back a bit. 

“The project is a complex development with many specialists and integration of input from City of Steinbach, User groups, etc. The project involves the full collaboration of technical experts in systems that include AV, ice plant, mechanical and others that has meant additional time to get the right system design.” 

Penner says they are excited to be moving forward with the Southeast Event Centre and notes they hope to close the tender before the end of August so construction can begin.
