MISSISSAUGA, ONT. — Bird Construction Inc. recently announced that it has been awarded two new projects, one in Ontario and one in Alberta, worth a total of over $160 million.
The first is a construction management services contract for the 185 Enfield Place Project in Mississauga, Ont. worth $107 million for GWL Realty Advisors.
The second is a stipulated sum contract for the Louvre Residence at the Century Park Project in Edmonton, for approximately $57 million under development by Procura Real Estate Services Ltd.
Construction on both projects is scheduled to commence in the second quarter of 2020, stated a May 20 release.
The Mississauga job was designed by Kirkor Architects and consists of a 35-storey, 366-unit rental residential tower with approximately 26,000 square metres of gross floor area. It includes a five-storey podium space and four levels of underground parking. The new building, to be built on a site in the Mississauga City Centre, is to be constructed to LEED gold standards.
The Louvre is a concrete and wood framed, mixed-use residential project comprised of 358 residential dwellings and over 800 square metres of commercial space. The building will be seven storeys tall, three concrete, four wood frame, with two levels of parking.
The Louvre development is part of the greater development of Century Park and will be completed in 2022.
“These two projects will add a combined $164 million to backlog in the second quarter of Bird’s 100th year of operations in Canada,” said Teri McKibbon, president and CEO of Bird, in the release. “These projects are both great examples of Bird’s discipline in contracting projects that are geographically diverse and balanced in terms of their risk profile.”
