The Ottawa Hospital Build Partners have started the development phase at The Ottawa Hospital’s new campus redevelopment after signing an agreement with Infrastructure Ontario.

The Ottawa Hospital Build Partners team includes:

  • Applicant leads: PCL Investments Inc & ED Capital Inc (Collectively ‘The Ottawa Hospital Build Partners)
  • Design team: Parkin Architects Ltd and Adamson Associates Architects
  • Construction team: PCL Constructors Canada Inc. and EllisDon Corporation Joint Venture
  • Financial advisor: PCL Investments Inc. & ED Capital Inc.

“The Ottawa Hospital Build Partners are proud to be invited to work with TOH and IO on such an incredibly important healthcare project in the National Capital Region,” said Bruce Sonnenberg, regional vice-president of PCL Constructors Inc. “We’re looking forward to leveraging our experience and innovation to help TOH not only provide cutting-edge medical care for generations to come, but to do so in a way that is both sustainable and accessible to all members of our Ottawa community.”

The Ottawa Hospital Build Partners will now work collaboratively with IO and The Ottawa Hospital, as well as with the Ministry of Health, to continue to advance the design and confirm fixed pricing.

Once the development phase is complete, it is expected that The Ottawa Hospital Build Partners will enter into a fixed-price Project Agreement with The Ottawa Hospital to design, build, finance, and maintain the new Campus Redevelopment project.

The building, one of the largest and most modern teaching hospitals in Canada, will be designed using a hybrid of leading sustainability models including the Canada Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) rating system, the National Capital Commission’s Sustainable Development Strategies, the One Planet Living framework, and the WELL Building Standard.

“Signing this agreement is an enormous milestone for the new campus project. Our collaborative efforts with all of our partners will reshape the future of health care across the region for our community for generations to come,”  Cameron Love, president and CEO of The Ottawa Hospital, said in a statement.

The new hospital plan includes:

  • 641 inpatient beds, including nearly 100 critical care beds.
  • One of the most advanced trauma centres in Eastern Ontario.
  • Education integrated into the design to ensure patients benefit from the most advanced and innovative technologies and therapies.
  • A one-patient, one bedroom, one-bathroom model for better infection prevention and control, better privacy and better rest.
  • A transit-oriented site that is pedestrian and cyclist safe, accessible, with greenspace.
