The Development Phase is now underway with Pomerleau Inc., the development partner selected to further develop the project requirements and design, pricing, and risk parameters for the Weeneebayko Area Health Authority (WAHA) redevelopment project.

Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and WAHA have signed a Development Phase Agreement with Pomerleau Inc. after extensive evaluations following an open, fair and competitive request for proposals process that began in January 2022. The Pomerleau team includes:

  • Applicant leads: Pomerleau Inc.
  • Design team: Kasian Architects Ontario Inc. and Bertrand Wheeler Architecture Inc.
  • Construction team: Pomerleau Inc.
  • Financial advisor: PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP

The WAHA redevelopment project is being delivered using a progressive public-private partnership (P3) approach which fosters collaborative development of project requirements, design, pricing and risk management.

Pomerleau Inc. will now work collaboratively with IO and WAHA under the Development Phase Agreement, as well as with the Ministry of Health and Indigenous Services Canada, to continue to define and refine project requirements to advance the design and confirm fixed pricing. Once the Development Phase is complete, the parties will have the option to sign a P3 Project Agreement and proceed to the construction phase, which is expected to begin in 2024.
