We have a builder for the Pan Am Games.
Infrastructure Ontario announced Monday that Bondfield Construction
has been awarded the contract to build and finance the three major venues for the 2015 Pan Am Parapan American Games.
The contract, valued at $80.5 million, covers the Markham Pan Am Centre, the two-field Pan American Field Hockey Centre on U of T's downtown campus, as well as renovations to the Etobicoke Olympium
The original request for qualifications went out in October, 2011, with the request for proposals being issued this past March.
According to Jennifer Asals, a spokeswoman for Infrastructure Ontario, which managed the bidding process along with TO2015
, the cities of Toronto and Markham and the University of Toronto, "the next step is that construction will begin on the Markham Pan Am Centre in the coming weeks, and the Pan Am field hockey and Etobicoke Olympium will start in 2013."
Bondfield has also recently begun work on the new Women's College Hospital
