Next step for CapitalCare Norwood project
Alberta Infrastructure is posting a Request For Proposals (RFP) for a construction manager for the CapitalCare Norwood Redevelopment project.
The construction manager fills an important role in providing pre-construction advice and assists in the development of construction activity.
“The Government of Alberta is committed to transforming CapitalCare Norwood to support the complex medical needs of our elderly and disabled adults in continuing care. By increasing bed capacity we are helping Albertans where they need it the most.”
“This project will mean a better quality of life for hundreds of Alberta families, including those living with dementia. By increasing the number of long-term care beds at Norwood, we are giving more seniors a comfortable, patient-centred home, while freeing up hospital resources.”
“Alberta Health Services is pleased the CapitalCare Norwood Redevelopment project is moving forward. This development will offer more care options for individuals who need ongoing care and support, as well as ensuring the most appropriate setting of care for Albertans.”
The public RFP is posted on the Alberta Purchasing Connection and will run for four weeks. All proposals will undergo a thorough review process and the contract will be awarded to the successful proponent in May.
When completed, the $364-million CapitalCare Norwood Redevelopment project will increase the number of post-acute and continuing care beds from 205 to 350. This will help meet the growing need in Edmonton and area for programs and services for complex continuing care and post-acute care.
The project will also improve patient-centred care by providing needed programs and services at a central location.
Over the next five to six months, the project focus will be on the completion of the design development phase of the project and continued consultation with the community and the City of Edmonton.
Construction is planned to get underway in the summer of 2019 and run through to 2023.
The Norwood redevelopment includes:
- the construction of a new 40,000-square-metre main facility
- demolition of the North Pavilion building
- demolition of the CHOICE Day Centre, after construction of a new replacement building
- a major renovation of the Angus McGugan Pavilion
