OTTAWA — Five prequalified companies have been invited to respond to a request for proposals to build and finance the Orleans Health Hub project in the Ottawa region.
The five companies were selected based on criteria identified in a request for qualifications process that began in January, explained a recent statement.
The prequalified companies are Amico Affiliates, Buttcon Limited, EllisDon Corporation, PCL Constructors Canada and Pomerleau.
The project will involve the construction of a 96,000-square-foot facility at the corner of Mer-Bleue Road and Brian Coburn Boulevard.
The new facility will house Bruyere Continuing Care, the Champlain LHIN, the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, the Eastern Ottawa Resource Centre, the Geriatric Psychiatry Community Services of Ottawa, the Hopital Montfort and the Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa.
Teams will now begin preparing proposals that detail how they will deliver the project. Once submissions are received, Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and Hopital Montfort will evaluate the proposals, select a preferred bidder and then negotiate a final contract.
A successful bidder is expected to be announced in summer 2019, said the release.
The procurement model is build-finance. The contract value will be announced after financial close. IO and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care are working with Hopital Montfort on the hospital procurement.
