Plenary Health CAMH has bagged a $685M contract from Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) to design, build, fund and maintain the CAMH Phase 1C redevelopment project in Toronto, Canada.
The project will involve the construction of two modern buildings along Queen Street West with inpatient and outpatient services, featuring about 60,850 sq m of new build space.
The new build-space will include 235 in-patient beds, ambulatory programmes, research and educational facilities, and information and resource facilities. The project will also include upgrades to parks and green space.
CAMH president and CEO Catherine Zahn said: "This will be the largest and boldest phase of CAMH's redevelopment project to date. Two light-filled and environmentally friendly buildings will open the doors to our community even wider. They will create dignified spaces for our patients to receive care and support for recovery."
Construction work is expected to commence at the end of 2017 and be completed in early 2020.
The Plenary Health CAMH includes developer Plenary Group (Canada) and PCL Investments Canada, with PCL Constructors Canada serving as the design-builder and Stantec Architecture serving as the architect. Plenary Group (Canada) Ltd will be the financial advisor and Engie Services Inc the facility manager for the project.
According to CAMH, the CAMH redevelopment project is converting a 27-acre site on Queen Street West into a welcoming, integrated community, weaving together new cutting-edge CAMH facilities with shops, residences, businesses, parks, and through-streets, creating an inclusive and healing neighbourhood.
