Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and Trillium Health Partners (THP) have issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for a design and development team for a new Mississauga hospital.
The Trillium Health Partners Broader Redevelopment – Mississauga Hospital Site project (The Peter Gilgan Mississauga Hospital) will feature modern hospital facilities and technology, and reflect the latest standards in infection prevention and control.
This historic, multi-billion-dollar project is a key part of Trillium Health Partners’ plan to create a new kind of health care that serves the growing and diverse communities in Mississauga and Etobicoke.
Over the next 20 years, the demand for health care services offered by Trillium Health Partners is expected to increase by nearly seven times more than the average hospital in Ontario.
The new Peter Gilgan Mississauga Hospital will replace the existing Mississauga Hospital. This project will further strengthen Trillium Health Partners, feature modern hospital facilities and technology, reflect the latest standards in infection prevention and control.
The successful bidder at the conclusion of the RFP process will work in collaboration with IO, THP and the Ministry of Health (Ministry) under a Development Phase Agreement, to further define and refine project requirements, design, pricing and risk parameters.
The RFP is the first step in IO’s new progressive procurement approach, which will “enable the participation of a long-term, sustainable market of qualified firms, competing to deliver projects through more collaborative means”.
A fairness monitor will oversee the RFP process to:
- Qualify teams with demonstrated experience and meet financial capacity requirements to proceed to the next phase of the RFP process – receiving bid documents and an invitation to attend commercially confidential meetings.
- Review applications from qualified teams for overall organization structure and team project experience, as well as design development, construction management and project controls plans for the Development Phase, and a financing plan and the price of the developer’s design and preconstruction services during the development phase.
The RFP process is expected to close in late summer 2022. IO and THP will evaluate submissions and select a partner to enter into a development phase agreement for the development phase.
Following the development phase, the development partner would enter into a fixed-price, public-private partnership (P3) agreement to design, build, finance, and maintain the Project.
