Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) have awarded a fixed-price contract to Plenary Health CAMH to design, build, finance and maintain the CAMH Phase 1C redevelopment project. The contract is valued at approximately $685 million, which reflects the payments made during construction, the substantial completion payment and the monthly service payments before inflation adjustments. This figure does not reflect the total project cost.

The Plenary Health CAMH team includes:

  • Developer: Plenary Group (Canada) Ltd. And PCL Investments Canada Inc.
  • Design-Builder: PCL Constructors Canada Inc. (Toronto)
  • Architect: Stantec Architecture Inc.
  • Financial Advisor: Plenary Group (Canada) Ltd.
  • Facility Manager: ENGIE Services Inc.

“I am pleased that we are one step closer to expanding mental health services at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, whose leadership in this sector has improved the lives of so many in Ontario. Improving access to high-quality mental health care in state-of-the-art facilities is a great example of our government’s commitment to putting patients first,” Dr. Eric Hoskins, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care.

The redevelopment project will see the construction of two modern buildings along Queen Street West in Toronto featuring inpatient and outpatient services for those most in need: people who are acutely ill as well as those experiencing the most complex forms of mental illness. The project will result in the construction of approximately 655,000 square feet of new build space, which will include:

  • 235 in-patient beds
  • ambulatory programs
  • relocation of the emergency department to the Queen Street site
  • research and educational facilities
  • information and resource facilities
  • site improvements, including parks and green space improvements

“We often talk about how investing in infrastructure can improve the quality of life for people across the province, and this project is one that encapsulates that idea perfectly. It will increase CAMH’s capacity for research and education, and it’ll help them improve care for those they serve,” said Bob Chiarelli, Minister of Infrastructure.

Construction will begin in fall 2017 with an expected substantial completion date of spring 2020.
