Bondfield to build Windsor hospital
Windsor Regional Hospital has signed a fixed-price contract with Bondfield Construction, to build and finance the hospital redevelopment project, clearing the way for construction to begin.
At the peak of construction, which will be completed in spring 2012, there will be approximately 220 workers on site daily. Bondfield expects to hire 80 per cent of its workers from the local Windsor community, including management staff, operating engineers, labourers, carpenters, bricklayers, painters and other skilled trades.
This will equate to approximately 500,000 hours of local labour over the lifespan of the project.
In addition to its other projects, Bondfield Construction is currently completing the expansion and renovation of two other alternative financing and procurement (AFP) hospital projects, including Credit Valley Hospital in Mississauga and Runnymede Healthcare Centre in Toronto.
On these projects, approximately 90 per cent of the workers have been hired from the local community or region.
The building team includes financing arranged by Bank of Montreal acting as agent, National Bank of Canada, Laurentian Bank and Toronto Dominion Bank.
