Community and Sustainability Benefits

The hospital will be designed and built with an emphasis on well-being for patients, visitors, staff members and the community at large. The design will use a hybrid of leading sustainability models including the Canada Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) rating system, the National Capital Commission’s Sustainable Development Strategies, the One Planet Living framework, and the WELL Building Standard.

Demonstrating Value

The TOH Civic Campus Redevelopment Project is being delivered using a Progressive Design-Build-Finance-Maintain (DBFM) model. Key benefits of a Progressive DBFM model include the opportunity to work more collaboratively to develop design, reduce risk and finalize the price before contracting for project implementation.  Using the Progressive DBFM model allows for significant risk transfer to the private sector over the life of the project agreement (that includes the 30-year maintenance term), greater cost and schedule certainty, greater potential for design and construction efficiencies and innovation as well as integration of long-term maintenance.

Based on precedent project experience, a DBFM procurement model typically has delivered a value for money savings in the range of 15% to 22% compared to undertaking the same projects using traditional delivery models.
