Bird to rebuild Casey House for $32M
Bird Construction has signed a $32 million contract to finance, redevelop and expand Casey House in Toronto. The 58,000-sq.-ft. project involves renovating an existing heritage property and the construction of a new facility that provides HIV/AIDS health care services.
The new facility will accommodate:
- 14 private in-patient beds, including two respite beds;
- office space for home care programs;
- therapy rooms and community space for a day health program;
- new spaces for administrative and support services.
At the peak of construction there will be approximately 200 workers on site. Bird estimates nearly all of the labour for Casey House’s replacement project will come from the Greater Toronto area.
The contract commits Bird Construction to build and finance the Casey House facility redevelopment project for $32 million, which will be paid out when construction is completed in late 2016.
