Infrastructure Ontario and ErinoakKids Centre for Treatment and Development have shortlisted three teams to design, build and finance new children’s treatment centres in Brampton, Mississauga and Oakville.

The three teams were chosen based on a request for qualifications process that began in January 2013. Each team consists of a developer, designer, builder and finance group.

  • Peel-Halton Partnership: Bondfield Construction Company Ltd., 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 Ltd., Montgomery Sisam Architects

The teams will be invited to respond to a request for proposals, which is expected to be issued this fall.

“Reaching this milestone brings us another step closer to creating these much-needed facilities for children and youth with disabilities and complex disorders,” said Bridget Fewtrell, president and CEO, ErinoakKids Centre for Treatment and Development. “The three new buildings will be accessible and appropriately designed to enable delivery of outstanding care and treatment to our community now and for generations to come.”

The three facilities will consolidate ErinoakKids’s programs and services for children with disabilities and special needs from ten existing sites. The largest will be about 122,000 sq. ft., located in Brampton; the Mississauga and Oakville sites will be roughly 93,000 and 74,000 sq. ft. The new buildings are slated to open in early 2017 and will offer a wide range of services.

“I know how important the children’s treatment centres are for everyone in the community they serve, so it’s great news to see this project continue to move forward,” said Minister of Children and Youth Services Teresa Piruzza. “When complete, these new facilities will provide families better access to the right kind of care, close to home.”
