These awards honor governments and/or public institutions and their private sector partners who have demonstrated excellence and innovation in public-private partnerships in project financing, service delivery, infrastructure investment and/or generation of economic benefit, which result in enhanced quality of public services and facilities.
“This year, the projects being honored are transforming our communities, from building state-of-the-art high schools and hospitals to bringing critical broadband service to rural and remote citizens. These seven projects demonstrate the continuing evolution and resiliency of the P3 model in delivering best-in-class infrastructure for Canadians that is innovative and cost effective”, said Lisa Mitchell, CCPPP’s President and CEO.
“We are ecstatic that the Grandview Children’s Treatment Centre Redevelopment Project won this award. Children First Consortium is excited to see the impact of the new ‘Grandview Kids’ and the support it provides to children and youth in the Durham Region.”, commented Nadine Leonard, Project Director of Children First Consortium at the award presentation.
The Children First consortium (Sacyr Engineering and Infrastructures and Amico) oversees the design, build, and financing (DBF) scheme of the Grandview Children’s (new Grandview Kids) Redevelopment Project in Ajax (Ontario, Canada).
This project, valued at around $85 million, reached financial and commercial closure in April 2022 and is currently in the development stage. The center, which specializes in children and youth with special needs and their families, will integrate a mix of rehabilitation, medical and clinical services, as well as education and research activities.
The few four-story facility will serve as the new headquarters for Grandview Kids and will have a gross area of 9,000 sq. m.
