Infrastructure Ontario and Halton Healthcare Services have issued a request for qualifications to design, build, finance and maintain the Milton District Hospital redevelopment project.
In the fast-growing community of Milton, this project will focus on increasing the services and facilities that are most in demand. These include emergency, surgical, critical care, maternal newborn, diagnostic imaging and support services, as well as medical/surgical inpatient units.
Request for qualifications submissions will be reviewed to pre-qualify project teams with the design, construction experience, qualified personnel and financial strength to deliver a project of this size and complexity. These teams will then be invited to respond to a request for proposals, which is expected to be released in the spring of 2014.
In advance of issuing the request for qualifications, Infrastructure Ontario and Halton Healthcare Services recently contracted Stantec Architecture Inc. as the planning, design and compliance team for the redevelopment project. Their job is to establish the guidelines and performance requirements the successful development team must meet when preparing their submissions for the project. Stantec will also monitor construction progress and provide coordination and oversight services throughout the course of the project.
The redevelopment project is targeting LEED Silver certification.
