- Bondfield Construction Company Limited
- EllisDon Capital Inc.
- Graham Construction and Engineering LP & Harbridge + Cross Limited, JV
- PCL Constructors Canada Inc.
- WCC Construction Canada ULC
The project includes a combination of renovations and new construction at the hospital. A new acute care wing will be built to include clinical services , including a surgical suite, birthing suite, emergency department, medical/surgical unit, intensive care unit, maternal newborn unit, pediatric unit and mental health unit; clinical support services , including a laboratory and central supply services; and a medical education campus, main entrance, lobby, registration and retail area.
Major interior renovations will occur in the existing ‘B Wing’ and will support upgrades primarily to the rehabilitation, medical surgical, emergency and diagnostic imaging units.
Once submissions to the request for proposals are received and evaluated, the successful project team is expected to be selected and announced in summer 2014. Construction is expected to begin shortly thereafter.
