The $2 billion Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital was recognized with a 2022 National Award for Innovation and Excellence in Public-Private Partnerships.

The hospital, which has been in operation since 2015, remains one of the largest infrastructure projects in Ontario. The LEED Gold facility, with 457 beds and shelled-in space to facilitate 602 beds by 2023, includes multiple smart technology enhancements.

The project continued despite the global collapse of initial consortium partner Carillion Canada Inc. in 2018. EllisDon took over 100 per cent responsibility for the 30-year management of the hospital’s facilities and services.

The partners on the project are Infrastructure Ontario, Halton Healthcare Services Corp., and Hospital Infrastructure Partners (Carillion Canada Inc., EllisDon Corp. and Fengate Capital Management Ltd.).

Grandview Kids new centre in Ajax was also honoured with an Award of Merit for Project Development. The new four-storey, 95,000 sq.-ft. facility will serve as the new headquarters for Grandview Kids as well as increase the centre’s ability to offer more services and serve a greater number of children and youth in Durham Region.

Design work on the $85.3 million project, awarded to Children First Consortium, got underway in the spring. The project should be complete and ready for occupancy by the spring of 2024.

Seven projects in total, including high schools, hospitals and an archival storage facility from across the country were chosen as winners by the Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships (CCPPP). The awards will be handed out in person this year at P3 2022 on November 21 in Toronto.

Ontario’s Accelerated High Speed Internet Program was awarded a silver in project development for its ambitious ‘electronic reverse auction’ project in connecting 266,000 hard-to-reach homes and businesses; the P3 Schools Bundle in Alberta scored a Gold Award in Project Development; and Library and Archives Canada new $330 million Preservation Storage Facility earned a Gold Award in Infrastructure.
