Infrastructure Ontario and Providence Care have released a request for proposals (RFP) to the three companies shortlisted to design, build, finance and maintain the new Providence Care Hospital.
A request for qualifications issued in March 2012 shortlisted the top three companies with the development, design, construction, financial and facilities management capacity to undertake a project of this size and complexity. The three shortlisted companies invited to bid are:
Integrated Team Solutions
. Developer: EllisDon Inc.
. Design: Parkin Architects / Adamson Architects Associates
. Construction: EllisDon Corporation
. Facilities Management: Johnson Controls
. Financial Advisor: Scotiabank
. Developer: Plenary Group
. Design: Cannon Design
. Construction: PCL Contractors Canada Inc.
. Facilities Management: Honeywell
. Financial Advisor: RBC Capital Markets
Providence Alliance for Caring Environments
. Developer: Carillion Canada Inc., Concert Infrastructure
. Design: IBI Group Limited
. Construction: Carillion Construction Inc. / M. Sullivan & Son Ltd.
. Facilities Management: Carillion Canada Inc.
. Financial Advisor: CIBC Capital Markets
The new hospital will include single inpatient rooms that meet current infection control standards and adjacent therapy and treatment spaces so patients can receive care closer to their rooms. It will also feature on-site clinics for inpatients and outpatients and improved teaching, learning and research facilities that will support Providence Care’s role as a major centre for health education and research. Affiliated with Queen’s University in Kingston and a member of the Council of Academic Hospitals of Ontario, Providence Care is a major center for health education and research. Providence Care is sponsored by the Catholic Health Corporation of Ontario.
The project will focus on sustainable design and construction, with the goal of achieving LEED Silver certification. Once submissions to the request for proposals are received and evaluated, the successful project team is expected to be selected and announced in late 2013. Construction is expected to begin shortly thereafter.
