MISSISSAUGA, ON, Oct. 29, 2013 /CNW/ – Infrastructure Ontario and
ErinoakKids Centre for Treatment and Development have released a
request for proposals to the three teams shortlisted to design, build
and finance new children’s treatment centres in Brampton, Mississauga
and Oakville.

A request for qualifications issued in January 2013 shortlisted three
companies with the design, construction and financial capacity to
undertake a project of this size and complexity. The following three
companies — each including a designer, builder and financial advisor —
have been invited to bid:

Peel-Halton Partnership

  • Bondfield Construction Company Limited
  • Stantec Architecture
  • Rocklynn Capital Inc.

Kids Health Infrastructure Partnership

  • Carillion Canada Inc
  • Bird Design-Build Inc
  • Zeidler Partnership Architects
  • Mitchell Architects
  • Investec Capital Markets

PCL Partnerships

  • PCL Constructors Canada Inc
  • NORR Limited
  • Montgomery Sisam Architects
  • TD Securities

The ErinoakKids Centre for Treatment and Development is the largest of
Ontario’s 21 children’s treatment centres, treating more than 13,500
children and youth with disabilities each year in Peel, Halton and
Dufferin. The three new facilities will allow ErinoakKids to
consolidate programs and services from ten existing sites and will be
purpose-built for children with disabilities and special needs. The
largest facility will be approximately 120,000 square feet and will be
located in Brampton, with the other two sites in Mississauga and
Oakville, approximately 90,000 and 70,000 square feet respectively.

The new buildings are slated to open in early 2017 and will offer a wide
range of services, including:

  • autism services such as intensive behavioural intervention and applied
    behavioural analysis
  • infant hearing and blind low vision services
  • physiotherapy and occupational therapy services
  • speech and language services
  • assistive devices resources services
  • medical, nursing and specialty medical services
  • respite services (at Brampton location only)
  • family support services

The project will support ErinoakKids in its mission to help children and
youth with physical, developmental and communication disabilities
achieve optimal levels of independence, learning, health and
well-being.

Infrastructure Ontario and the Ministry of Children and Youth Services
are working with ErinoakKids Centre for Treatment and Development to
build the new children’s treatment centres, which will remain publicly
owned and controlled.

complex infrastructure renewal projects on time and on budget. Over the

. Infrastructure Ontario also manages one of the largest

public sector clients with financing to renew public infrastructure,
and leverages its private-sector expertise to manage major commercial
transactions on behalf of the province.
