Quebec mulls new hospital DBF

The Société Québécoise des Infrastructures (SQI) has issued a notice of proposed procurement for a hospital construction P3.

The expression of Interest is regarding a market survey for the Vaudreuil-Soulanges Hospital Construction Project. The SQI, the government of Quebec’s infrastructure arm, is currently preparing a procurement process regarding the new hospital project for Vaudreuil-Soulanges, with completion expected in 2026. The hospital will have 404 beds and will occupy a surface area of approximately 120,882 m2.

The business case for the project was authorized on March 14, 2018 by the government of Quebec. The project will be carried out under the design-building-finance delivery model.

SQI has commissioned KPMG to conduct a market survey in order to obtain market perspective regarding various commercial, technical and procurement aspects of the project. Information gathered through the market survey could be used to determine some of the Project requirements that will be set out during the procurement process in 2020.

Furthermore, the information provided by survey participants and their participation in any of the activities outside the boundaries of this exercise will not be used, in any manner, as means of evaluation for subsequent procurement processes related to the project. Therefore, participation in the market survey does not imply a commitment of any nature to authorize respondents to take part in any subsequent procurement process relating to the project.

KPMG will forward a survey to be filled out and plan 60-minute phone interviews with interested participants who satisfy the following criteria:

•    Must have been involved, as a general contractor, designer, architect, engineer or funder in the Request for Proposals of at least one hospital construction project carried out under an alternative delivery model (DB, DBF or DBFM) at a contractual unit value of at least CAD150m.

KPMG also reserves the right to directly contact certain companies that have not expressed an interest in the Project.

Responses are due January 15, 2020 and questions shall be accepted until January 11.
