Public-Private Partnerships (PPP), by definition, are partnerships between the public and private sectors, established to deliver public infrastructure assets such as roads, hospitals, schools and water treatment plants. PPPs span a wide range of agreements – from Design-Build-Finance to Design-Build-Finance-Maintain-Operate – and depending on the model chosen, team members might include engineers, architects, builders, lenders and maintenance and operations providers.
While the Canadian PPP model has been around for generations, the use of PPPs for environmental projects including water/wastewater treatment and organics waste management, is relatively recent. Our decades-long history of work on environmental projects makes us the ideal fit for municipalities that need partners with the bench strength to execute these highly complex facilities. In this sector, our experience is second-to-none.

Maple Reinders provides a unique advantage in being able to sit at more than one seat at the consortium table. Our subsidiary company, the AIM Environmental Group is Canada’s largest private operator of municipal organics processing infrastructure and currently provides Operations, Maintenance & Repair services to several facilities across Canada, from Calgary to Halifax and several locations in Ontario. In fact, we currently receive and process the organic waste material from over 3.5 million
Canadians – 10% of the population.
With our ability to fill more than just the Builder role of the consortium, we understand, and can anticipate overall project risk better and provide more value throughout the entire project life-cycle. Simply put, our experience and expertise make us a better partner.

Organics Waste Management
The Calgary Compost Facility is the largest in-vessel composting facility in North America, with the main composting building having a footprint more than 31,000 square metres.
Maple Reinders, as part of the Harbour City Solutions consortium, was selected to build the Hamilton Biosolids Management project. The project is being delivered through a PPP using the design-build-finance-operate-maintain model, with a 30-year contract operations term.
The first P3 project for municipal wastewater treatment in Canada, the Lac La Biche project involved the design, build (including procurement) and operation of a new 4,500m³/day Biological Nutrient Removal (BNR) wastewater treatment facility, in addition to a new lift station and forcemain the County of Lac la Biche in northern Alberta.
