The University of Ottawa Heart Institute to Receive Improvements

There are about to be some major improvements brought to the University of Ottawa Heart Institute, according to a recent article I was reading. Evidently, Infrastructure Ontario recently announced that five companies will have the opportunity to bid for a construction and redevelopment contract with the institute.

This is big news for the institution, which is Canada’s largest and foremost cardiovascular health centre. It is dedicated to understanding, treating and preventing heart disease.

More On This Exciting Development

For those of you who haven’t been following this story, a request for proposal went out in September for the renovations of this cetre.

According to the article I was reading, here are the five companies currently vying for a contract with the institute:

  • Bondfield Construction Company Ltd.
  • EllisDon Capital Inc.
  • M. Sullivan & Son Ltd.
  • PCL Constructors Canada Inc.
  • Pomerleau Inc.

The contract will be rewarded after a lengthy screening process that requires bidders to prove they are most capable of completing the project.

By the time it’s complete, this project will see five floors and a total of 146,000 square feet of space added to the institute. And an additional 60,000 square feet is expected to be renovated.

The project is expected to be financed through a public-private partnerships.  The company that will ultimately be selected for the project is expected to be notified in Winter 2014.

Enjoy a High Quality of Life in Ottawa

The latest project at the University of Ottawa Heart Institute simply means that residents living here will have even more spectacular amenities here to boost quality of life. And who wouldn’t want to have the nation’s foremost cardiovascular health centre right in their own backyard?
