EllisDon, Fengate win hospital project

Providence Care in Ontario is an envisioned 270-bed facility and will see investment of C$350m.

A preferred bidder has been chosen to design, build, finance and maintain a 270-bed hospital in Kingston, a city of 117,000 in Ontario, Canada, according to Infrastructure Ontario (IO).

The value of the contract with winning consortium ‘Integrated Team Solutions’ will be announced along with the commercial and financial close of the project in the autumn, IO said.

State-owned IO, a ‘Crown corporation’ responsible for public infrastructure in the province, disclosed that the estimated investment for the project amounts to C$350 million (€248 million; $336 million).

Integrated Team Solutions is led by developer EllisDon Corporation and C$1.5 billion investment company Fengate Capital Management.

Ontario-based EllisDon will build the hospital, which will be designed by Parkin Architects and managed by Johnson Controls. Scotia Capital is acting as financial advisor to the project.

The team responded to a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) in March 2012 and was shortlisted for a Request for Proposals (RFP) in December 2012.

The hospital is to be named Providence Care. Construction of Providence Care is expected to begin later this year.
