Contracts Awarded for Advisors for New Correctional Facility
The Department of Transportation and Works has awarded three contracts for the procurement of a new correctional facility to replace Her Majesty’s Penitentiary.
Contracts have been awarded to:
Kleinfeldt Mychajlowycz Architects Inc., valued at $2.82 million, for technical advisory services;
EY, valued at $450,275, for financial and procurement advisory services, and
RFP Solutions, valued at $38,000, for fairness advisory services.
A Request for Qualifications will be issued this spring to establish a short list of businesses interested in designing, building, financing and maintaining the correctional facility.
Businesses will then be evaluated and a short list will be invited to respond to the Request for Proposals for the project.
Construction of the new facility is anticipated to start in 2021 and be completed in 2024-25.
The new 21,000 square metre correctional facility will more than double the capacity of Her Majesty’s Penitentiary and make better use of technology to increase safety, allowing for more programming, recreation, and better mental health and addictions services.
This will allow inmates a better opportunity to become productive members of society and break the cycle of reoffending.
