EllisDon Infrastructure Justice has been selected as the preferred proponent to design, build, finance, and maintain the Thunder Bay Correctional Complex project.
Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and the Ministry of the Solicitor General selected EllisDon Infrastructure Justice after extensive evaluations following an open, fair and competitive request for proposals process that began in March 2018. The EllisDon Infrastructure Justice team includes:
- Developer: EllisDon Capital Inc.
- Design-Builder: EllisDon Corporation
- Design Team: Zeidler Architecture Inc. and DLR Group Inc.
- Facilities Management: EllisDon Facilities Services Inc.
- Financial Advisor: EllisDon Capital Inc.
IO and the Ministry of the Solicitor General will now work to finalize contract details with EllisDon Infrastructure Justice. The project is expected to reach financial close in the coming weeks, which will mean that relevant contracts have been signed and a financing rate has been set. The contract cost will be announced publicly following financial close, with final design and construction to begin thereafter. The actual construction start and completion dates will be finalized subject to negotiation with the successful proponent prior to financial close.
