Infrastructure Ontario (IO) has selected Colliers Project Leaders as the next Project Management Services Provider (PMSP) for the Ontario Ministry of Infrastructure’s General Real Estate Portfolio (GREP).
IO’s PMSP program involves managing a variety of capital repair and ministry-funded projects across the province’s real estate portfolio with a value of up to $20 million. The contract includes program management, project delivery, corporate support, and provision of technical services.
Colliers will deliver high-complexity projects from inception through to final completion, including design, construction, and commissioning, utilizing a predominantly Design-Bid-Build contract model for designers and contractors.
The contract was awarded following an open, fair, and competitive proposal process launched in January 2023. After evaluating each proposal, IO awarded Colliers with the PMSP contract. Colliers will proceed with transitioning to their new role as PMSP, with full-service delivery expected to begin in spring 2024.
IO is fully responsible for the GREP portfolio, which accommodates ministry programs that serve Ontarians and is comprised of 4,300 buildings and 150,000 acres of land in over 362 unique active municipalities across Ontario.
