MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - July 8, 2016) - ENGIE Services announced today that it has secured a 32-year contract to deliver integrated facility management (IFM) services to the Phase 1 patient tower at William Osler Health System's Etobicoke General Hospital in Ontario.
This significant public-private partnership contract, jointly won with its subsidiary ENGIE MultiTech (formerly known as Cofely Adelt) based in Toronto, further cements ENGIE Services' growing geographical footprint in Ontario.
"Our success on this project is a demonstration on our existing experience in providing tailored IFM services across Canada", says Pierre Loyer, ENGIE Services' Vice President of Business Development. "This agreement builds on our growing presence in the Ontario market and helps reinforce our leadership position in the FM market. We are proud to play a key role in this sustainable transformational expansion project that is central to the wellbeing of the growing Toronto community."
The 250,000 square foot, state-of-the-art four-storey patient tower will house services most urgently needed by the community, such as a larger emergency department, an expanded ICU/CCU, larger patient rooms to accommodate family members, a maternal newborn unit and an ambulatory procedures unit. The new facility was designed with a focus on sustainability with the goal of achieving Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification.
As part of the Etobicoke Healthcare Partnership (EHP) consortium, ENGIE Services will be providing hard and soft FM services, energy management and lifecycle for the 32-year operational term. ENGIE MultiTech will be delivering all mechanical and plumbing construction for the patient care tower, including building management system and medical gas. One of Canada's largest and most reputable mechanical contractors, ENGIE MultiTech has built, installed and maintained mechanical systems for industrial, commercial, institutional and biotech facilities for over 37 years.
"This is the first contract of its kind jointly won with our parent company ENGIE Services", says Louie Cosolo, CEO of ENGIE MultiTech. "Having both, mechanical contractor and facilities management under the same umbrella is quite beneficial since the alignment of interest from construction to operation of the facility is shared by all parties."
Construction is expected to start in summer 2016 and completed by mid-2018.
