Seneca College to expand King City campus
May 9, 2014 by STAFF REPORT
Infrastructure Ontario and Seneca College have issued a request for qualifications to pre-qualify companies to design, build and finance the first phase of the Seneca King Campus expansion in King City, north of Toronto.
The project will create space for 1,450 additional students while improving the quality of student learning and campus life experience. When complete, King Campus will provide teaching and learning opportunities for more than 5,000 full-time students.
The King Campus expansion project includes:
- A new academic facility to accommodate approximately 25 classrooms, computer labs, specialty labs for training health care practitioners, a library, learning commons and student study space.
- A new student centre, with a multi-purpose athletic and recreation space featuring a gymnasium, fitness centre, informal study areas and event spaces
- Upgrades to Garriock Hall – the main academic facility – and to existing site services.
This project will be built using Infrastructure Ontario’s alternative financing and procurement delivery model – a public-private partnership model – that transfers risks associated with designing, constructing and financing a building to the private sector.
Shortlisted teams will be invited to respond to a request for proposals, expected to be released this fall.
