CAMH issues RFQ

Redevelopment project aims to modernize facilities used for forensic mental health program.
Infrastructure Ontario and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) have issued a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) to design, build and finance the CAMH Phase 1D Redevelopment project. The RFQ is the first step in the process to select a team to help deliver the project.
Submissions will be reviewed to shortlist teams with the design and construction experience, as well as the financial capacity, to deliver a project of its size and complexity. Shortlisted teams will then be invited to respond to a Request for Proposals (RFP), which is expected to be published in the fall of this year.
CAMH is Canada’s largest mental health teaching hospital and one of the world’s leading research centres. The Toronto-based organization is in the midst of a multi-phase transformation of its Queen Street West site.
The centre’s forensic mental health program currently operates out of an old, institutional building that does not align with modern concepts of forensic health care. Phase 1D of the redevelopment project, the fourth and final part of the hospital’s broader redevelopment, includes upgrades to the department’s facility, as well as additional indoor and outdoor support spaces.
