Detention Centre Project Attracts Industry Interest



    TORONTO, Sept. 9 /CNW/ - Infrastructure Ontario and the Ministry of
Community Safety and Correctional Services announced today the companies
pre-qualified to design, build, finance and maintain the Toronto South
Detention Centre.
    The Toronto South Detention Centre will be located on the south portion
of the Mimico Correctional Facility in west Etobicoke. The project includes a
1,650-bed maximum security facility for adult offenders, including those with
special needs. It will replace the Toronto Jail which is an aging facility
that is often over capacity.

    
    The pre-qualified companies include:

    -   Integrated Team Solutions - EllisDon Corporation, Fengate Capital
        Management Inc., LPF Infrastructure Fund, RBC Dominion Securities
        Inc., Zeidler Partnership Architects, and Johnson Controls Inc.;
    -   Access Security Toronto - Babcock & Brown ULC, WZMH Architects, PCL
        Constructors Canada Inc. and Honeywell; and
    -   SNC - SNC-Lavalin Inc., SNC-Lavalin Investment, Schenkel Schultz
        Architecture, SNC-Lavalin in joint venture with Bondfield
        Construction and SNC-Lavalin ProFac.
    

    The pre-qualified companies will be invited to respond to a request for
proposals, expected to be issued later this month. The teams were
pre-qualified through a request for qualifications (RFQ) process, which began
in June 2008.
    Each company was selected for their development, design, construction,
financial, and facilities management capacity to undertake a project of this
size and complexity.
    "This new facility will help the government to meet the current and
future needs of the correctional system," said Rick Bartolucci, Minister of
Community Safety and Correctional Services.
    Infrastructure Ontario is working with the Ministry of Community Safety
and Correctional Services to develop the facility. Infrastructure Ontario is a
Crown corporation dedicated to managing some of the province's larger and more
complex infrastructure renewal projects - ensuring they are built on time and
on budget.
    This project is guided by principles outlined in the province's Building
a Better Tomorrow framework, which ensures public ownership of core assets
such as hospitals, schools, and water and wastewater facilities.
