Ontario awards hospital redevelopment

EllisDon Capital has won a CA$288.5m (£168m) contract to build and finance the next phase of redevelopment at Mount Sinai Hospital in Ontario, Canada.

 

Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and Sinai Health System awarded the fixed-price contract for phase 3A of the redevelopment following a competitive request for qualifications process that began in August 2015.

 

The project includes areas such as redevelopment of the critical care unit and the expansion and redesign of the emergency department, operating rooms and surgical services. Other aspects include provision of increased capacity for medical and surgery inpatients and redesign of some of the ambulatory care areas.

EllisDon will now mobilise on site, with an expected substantial completion date of autumn 2022.

This project is being delivered using Infrastructure Ontario's Alternative Financing & Procurement (AFP) model. Projects that are delivered using IO's AFP model have a track record of being 96% on budget and 73% on time or within one month of the scheduled substantial completion date.

 Minister of infrastructure Bob Chiarelli said: “Mount Sinai Hospital is an important project for the local community, and for our province. I'm pleased to see that we are making good progress on this project. We are committed to getting the best value for money when it comes to infrastructure projects, and the redevelopment at Mount Sinai Hospital will create jobs, stimulate the provincial economy and reinforce our commitment to building Ontario up.”
