Preferred proponent selected for B.C. hospital
Affinity Partnerships has been selected as the preferred proponent for the BC Children's and Women's Hospitals redevelopment project in Vancouver.
The consortium includes Balfour Beatty Investments, with Zimmer Gunsul Frasca Architects (ZGF) LLP and CEI Architecture handling design.
Construction will be handled by Balfour Beatty Construction and the Ledcor Group, and services by Balfour Beatty Communities and Black and McDonald Limited
The next stage in the competitive selection process is for the Provincial Health Services Authority (PHSA) to negotiate with Affinity Partnerships to settle the final terms of the contract, which is expected to conclude in a performance-based contract by the spring of 2014.
Construction of the Acute Care Centre is anticipated to get underway by the winter of 2014/15 and will be designed to a LEED Gold standard.
The total cost of the redevelopment project is estimated at $680 million.
