Development phase underway for WAHA redevelopment

OTTAWA — The Weeneebayko Area Health Authority (WAHA) redevelopment project is entering the development phase with Pomerleau Inc., the partner selected to further develop the project requirements and design, pricing and risk parameters.

Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and WAHA have signed a Development Phase Agreement with Pomerleau Inc. after extensive evaluations following a request for proposals process that began in January 2022.

The Pomerleau team includes Pomerleau Inc. (applicant leads and construction team); Kasian Architects Ontario Inc. and Bertrand Wheeler Architecture Inc. (design team); and PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (financial adviser).

WAHA provides health care services to people living along Ontario’s James Bay and Hudson Bay coasts, many of whom are of Cree lineage. The redevelopment project involves the construction of a new hospital, Elder Care Lodge, visitor hostel and staff accommodations in Moosonee and a new Ambulatory Care Centre on Moose Factory Island.

The project is being delivered using a progressive public-private partnership approach which fosters collaborative development of project requirements, design, pricing and risk management.

Pomerleau Inc. will now work with IO and WAHA under the Development Phase Agreement, as well as with the Ministry of Health and Indigenous Services Canada, to continue to define and refine project requirements to advance the design and confirm fixed pricing.

Once the phase is complete, the parties will have the option to sign a P3 Project Agreement and proceed to the construction phase, which is expected to begin in 2024.
