RFP out for Ontario hospital P3

Three consortia will vie for a DBFOM concession in suburban Toronto.

A hospital project in Brampton, a Toronto suburb, is closing in on a private consortium for a design, build, finance, operate, and maintain (DBFOM) concession, Infrastructure Ontario (IO) said.

Three consortia were shortlisted in April for the Peel Memorial Centre for Health and Wellness, a greenfield public-private partnership (PPP: P3), according to IO, a ‘Crown corporation’ overseeing infrastructure in Ontario, a province of Canada.

The Centre will replace the 367-bed Peel Memorial Hospital, which was founded in 1925 and demolished in 2007.

‘Integrated Team Solutions,’ ‘Peel Healthcare Partnership’ and ‘Plenary Health’ responded to a request for qualification (RFQ) published in November 2012. A request for proposal (RFP) was published for the PPP on the IO website.

Integrated Team Solutions is a consortium teaming Scotiabank with EllisDon and Fengate Capital Management as well as architect Zeidler Partnership and building manager Johnson Control Canada.

Peel Healthcare Partnership is comprised of Bilfinger Project Investments, contractor WCCC Construction Canada, architect HDR and building manager Cofely.

Plenary Health is comprised of Plenary Group, contractor PCL, architect Diamond Scmitt, financial adviser RBC Capital Markets and building manager Honeywell.

Characterised as a “modern” healthcare center, Peel Memorial has hauled in C$17 million ($16 million; €12.4 million) in funding, including C$8.6 million from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.
