Detention centre project attracts industry interest

Infrastructure Ontario and the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services announced the companies pre-qualified to design, build, finance and maintain the Toronto South Detention Centre.

The Toronto South Detention Centre will be located on the south portion of the Mimico Correctional Facility in west Etobicoke. The project includes a 1,650-bed maximum security facility for adult offenders, including those with special needs. It will replace the Toronto Jail which is an aging facility that is often over capacity.

The pre-qualified companies include:

Integrated Team Solutions – EllisDon Corporation, Fengate Capital Management Inc., LPF Infrastructure Fund, RBC Dominion Securities Inc., Zeidler Partnership Architects, and Johnson Controls Inc.;
Access Security Toronto – Babcock & Brown ULC, WZMH Architects, PCL Constructors Canada Inc. and Honeywell; and
SNC – SNC-Lavalin Inc., SNC-Lavalin Investment, Schenkel Schultz Architecture, SNC-Lavalin in joint venture with Bondfield Construction and SNC-Lavalin ProFac.

Each company was selected for their development, design, construction, financial, and facilities management capacity to undertake a project of this size and complexity.

“This new facility will help the government to meet the current and future needs of the correctional system,” said Rick Bartolucci, Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services.

This project is guided by principles outlined in the province’s Building a Better Tomorrow framework, which ensures public ownership of core assets such as hospitals, schools, and water and wastewater facilities.
