Regina is getting set to demolish old Mosaic Stadium after recently awarding the contract for the project.

“The demolition of a stadium is a once in a generation experience in our city,” said Mayor Michael Fougere.

“We are confident that the deconstruction plan will be implemented safely, respectful of the nearby residents and mindful of the environment thanks to its waste minimization strategy.”

Over the summer, Regina partnered with McDougall Auctions Ltd. To dispose a wide range of assets from the stadium. The city sold 114,500 square feet of turf and 880 benches.

The money raised from the auction will help offset the cost of the demolition.

Work to start tearing down the stadium will begin in September with all above grade elements being removed by December 2017. The site restoration will be complete by spring 2018.

The city will hold an open house with contract recipient Budget Demolition to inform people about the deconstruction process.
