TORONTO

Infrastructure Ontario and TO2015 recently announced the companies short-listed to build and finance three venues for the Toronto 2015 Pan/Parapan American Games.

The development of three venues in time for the Games is expected to provide an economic boost in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) region by creating and supporting direct and indirect jobs. These facilities will also address the long-term needs of growing communities across the GTA area and encourage the development and promotion of amateur competitive sports locally.

The project includes construction of a new Markham Pool and Field House facility that will host the water polo and badminton competitions, renovations and improvements to the existing Etobicoke Olympium facility, which will be the training site for aquatic disciplines including swimming, water polo, diving and synchronized swimming during the Games; and construction of a new two-field Pan American Field Hockey Centre; plans include the two fields to be located on University of Toronto lands.

Over the past few months, companies participated in a fair and competitive request for qualifications (RFQ) process that reviewed their construction and financing abilities to deliver the project.

Following Infrastructure Ontario’s evaluations of the RFQ submissions, the following companies were short-listed and will be invited to respond to the request for proposals (RFP) for the project: PCL Constructors Canada Inc., EllisDon Corporation and Bondfield Construction Company Limited.

The RFP will be issued in February 2012. The construction of these facilities and their operation during the Pan/Parapan American Games is a joint initiative of the Province of Ontario and the Government of Canada, in partnership with the Town of Markham, City of Toronto and the University of Toronto.
