Shortlisted companies invited to bid on St. Michael’s Hospital redevelopment project


Infrastructure Ontario and St. Michael’s Hospital have released a request for proposals to the three teams shortlisted to design, build and finance the hospital’s renewal project.

A request for qualifications issued in December 2012 shortlisted the top three companies with the development, design, construction and financial capacity to undertake a project of this size and complexity. The three shortlisted companies invited to bid are:

St. Michael’s Partnership

  • Bondfield Construction Company Limited (construction)
  • NORR Limited / Farrow Partnership (design)
  • Rocklyn Capital Inc. (financial advisors)

Integrated Team Solutions

  • EllisDon Corporation
  • Kasian Architecture
  • EllisDon Capital Inc. / Fengate Capital Inc.

PCL Partnerships

  • PCL Constructors Canada Inc
  • B+H Architects / Silver Thomas Hanley
  • TD Securities Inc.

A new tower will allow St. Michael’s Hospital to relocate patient beds from an 85-year-old wing and provide larger space for programs that treat some of the most critically ill patients from across Ontario. These programs include patients from the medical-surgical intensive care unit and the largest adult cystic fibrosis program in North America.

Five new operating rooms will be added to the hospital, each large enough to include state-of-the-art medical imaging equipment. These hybrid operating rooms will allow surgeons to perform minimally invasive, image-guided or catheter-based procedures and undertake open surgery in the same operating room.

Redevelopment work will also provide expanded, state-of-the-art inpatient facilities for orthopedic surgery, oncology and respirology – including the cystic fibrosis program – as well as critical care space for the coronary and medical-surgical units.

The current emergency department will also be expanded. It was originally designed to accommodate 45,000 patient visits a year, but now accommodates more than 70,000 a year – a number that continues to grow with the population. This expansion will allow St. Michael’s to continue to fulfill its mandate as a regional trauma centre.
