Forensic Services and Coroner's Complex project attracts industry interest

    TORONTO, April 27 /CNW/ - Infrastructure Ontario and the Ministry of
Community Safety and Correctional Services announced today the companies
short-listed to design, build, finance and maintain the new Forensic Services
and Coroner's Complex. The facility will be located at the government's
Downsview Complex in Toronto, subject to final planning approvals.
    Of the six pre-qualified companies, three companies will be invited to
respond to a request for proposals (RFP), expected for release spring 2009.
The three short-listed companies are:

    -   Carillion Secure Solution
        -   Carillion Canada Inc.
        -   Stantec Architecture, Ltd.;
        -   McClaren, Willis & Lawrie Inc.;
        -   Vanbots, a division of Carillion Construction Inc.;
        -   The State Group Inc.;
        -   The Univex Group of Companies; and
        -   BMO Capital Markets

    -   Integrated Team Solutions (ITS)
        -   EllisDon Corporation;
        -   Honeywell Limited (Canada);
        -   Parkin Architects Limited and Smith Carter Architecture and
            Engineers Incorporated (JV);
        -   Halsall Associates;
        -   Smith and Andersen Consulting Engineering;
        -   Crossey Engineering Ltd.;
        -   Geo A. Kelson Company Limited;
        -   Black & McDonald Limited;
        -   EllisDon Constructions; and
        -   Scotia Capital

    -   Justice Infrastructure Partnership (JIP)
        -   Bilfinger Berger;
        -   Perkins Eastman Black + Bregman Hamann Architects (JV);
        -   SNC Lavalin Inc. + Bondfield Construction Company Limited (JV);
        -   Hidi Rae Consulting + Crime Lab Design;
        -   Jones Lang LaSalle + HSG Zander (a subsidiary of Bilfinger) (JV);
        -   Bilfinger Berger Project Investments Inc.

    The new Forensic Services and Coroner's Complex will accommodate
increased capacity for autopsies and forensic science cases. The combined
facility will make collaboration between the Office of the Chief Coroner and
the Centre of Forensic Sciences easier.
    In addition, housing the two operations on one site will help the
government realise efficiencies during construction and through shared
services once the complex opens.
    "We are moving forward to create a modern, technologically advanced
facility that will keep pace with the increasingly complex demands of the
justice sector," said Rick Bartolucci, Minister of Community Safety and
Correctional Services. "This project is also a sign of the government's
commitment to investing in infrastructure in our community, creating jobs and
spurring economic development."
    A request for qualifications issued in December 2008 short-listed the
three teams with the development, design, construction, financial, and
facilities management capacity to undertake a project of this size and
    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.
