Infrastructure Ontario and Sheridan College have issued a request for qualifications to design, build and finance Phase II of the Sheridan College Hazel McCallion Campus development in Mississauga.
The Sheridan College Hazel McCallion Campus, which opened in September 2011, provides a creative, collaborative learning environment for students, reflecting Sheridan's Creative Campus concept. The expansion will enable Sheridan to increase the range of the programs offered at the campus and accommodate up to an additional 3,200 full-time students, for a total enrolment of approximately 5,500.
The new facility, to be located on the existing campus, will be approximately 184,000 square feet and feature state-of-the-art classrooms, computer laboratories, a Centre of Creative Thinking, faculty offices, and a gallery space to celebrate student creativity and innovation.
This project will proceed under Infrastructure Ontario's alternative financing and procurement model, and the request for qualifications is the first step in the procurement process. Submissions will be reviewed to pre-qualify project teams with the design and construction experience as well as the qualified personnel and financial capacity to deliver a project of this size and complexity. Pre-qualified teams will be invited to respond to a request for proposals, which is expected to be released in the summer of 2013.
