Architectural firm and project manager named for new Grandview Children’s Treatment Centre Redevelopment Project
The Grandview Children’s Treatment Centre Redevelopment Project has taken an important step forward with the selection of B+H Architects as the planning, design and conformance (PDC) team and Colliers Project Leaders as Grandview’s project manager.
B+H Architects will prepare project documents, including output specifications that will form the guidelines and performance requirements that the successful building team must meet when preparing the design. The team will also monitor construction progress and provide coordination and oversight during commissioning, completion, and transition to the new facility.
Colliers Project Leaders will support the management of the project on behalf of Grandview Children’s Centre by providing advice on the output specifications, procurement, contract administration and post-occupancy stages.
The vision for the new Grandview Children’s Centre is to support the seamless and coordinated provision of family-centred care for children and youth with physical, communication and developmental needs and their families. It will be an open, welcoming and inclusive community-based paediatric facility supporting an integrated mix of rehabilitation, medical and clinical services, education and research activities.
The new Grandview Children’s Centre will include:
- Centre-Wide Therapy Services: occupational therapy, physiotherapy, speech-language pathology, recreation therapy, audiology, infant hearing, blind low vision, social work;
- The Ontario Autism Program and services
- Developmental Paediatric Medical Services including specialist medical clinics,
- Campbell Children’s School
- Family resources services,
- School-based rehabilitation services, and,
- Preschool outreach program.
Once complete, Grandview will consolidate the existing main site in Oshawa and multiple satellite locations into one purpose-built site at 1465 Harwood Avenue North, Ajax. Grandview will maintain three satellite locations to reduce extensive travel times for some clients and their families
Grandview Children’s Centre will be working closely with the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services and Infrastructure Ontario to deliver the project under the public-private partnership model.
As the next major step, Grandview Children’s Centre and Infrastructure Ontario will issue a request for qualifications (RFQ), inviting teams to submit their credentials to design, build and finance the new facility. The RFQ is expected to be released in late summer 2020.
