Ontario’s accelerated build pilot program for construction of long-term care homes

The Ontario government embarked on an accelerated build long-term care construction project, which involved the construction of four 320-bed long-term care homes on an accelerated build basis at sites located at three separate Hospitals in the Greater Toronto Area. This project involved an innovative procurement process involving a Request for Qualifications for Standing Offer Agreement (“RFQSO”) and the negotiation with various potential construction managers/contractors of a unique form of construction management contract involving the provision of design services by the construction manager.

The transaction is valued at over $50 million.

Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP’s construction group, engaged on a joint retainer basis by the three Hospitals involved in the Project and by Infrastructure Ontario, assisted with the drafting and negotiation of the construction management contract referred to above and with the project management of the Project on an expedited time basis with a team led by
Marty Emmons,
and which included
Robert Iaccino,
Jennifer Parker,
Tom Barlow,
Zackary Burashko.
