Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) have launched the next step in the process and the three finalist teams are invited to submit their Request For Proposal (RFP) for the contract to design, build, finance and maintain the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) Phase 1C redevelopment project in Toronto, Canada.
Once the RFP submissions are received, IO and CAMH will evaluate them and select the successful team. The winning team is expected to be announced in late 2016, with construction scheduled to follow shortly thereafter.
In August 2015, Infrastructure Ontario and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health shortlisted three teams for the redevelopment PPP project.
The shortlisted teams were:
The redevelopment project will see the construction of two modern buildings that will integrate innovative treatment, research and education facilities with retail spaces, parks and the surrounding neighbourhood. The project will result in the new construction of approximately 600,000 square feet of new build space, which will include: inpatient and outpatient clinical services for people with complex mental illness, including emergency care and therapeutic supports; research and educational facilities; information and resource facilities.
The project will also see the extension of roads, parks and green space improvements and restoration of heritage structures around the facility.
