2. BACKGROUND AND SITUATION OVERVIEW
As part of the next phase of redevelopment (Phase 1D) and the consolidation of all CAMH services to 1001 Queen Street West, Toronto, CAMH intends to construct a new 7 storey, 380,000 sq. ft. facility involving a composite mass timber structure. Following an architectural competition, KPMB/Treanor HL and AEI Affiliated Engineers were selected as designers for the project. The structural consultants, Blackwell Structural Engineers, are part of the Design Team. The design as currently envisioned is to provide a composite mass timber structure from floors 3 to 7. Current architectural and structural drawings and high-level milestone schedule will be made available to interested vendors following the execution of a non-disclosure agreement.
Because mass timber construction is an evolving industry CAMH wishes to undertake a certain amount of risk management by issuing an RFP for selection of a vendor who would be engaged under a two part agreement to provide design assist services, working with the Design Team and CAMH, in developing innovative ways to deliver the proposed composite mass timber system including integration with other construction trades and secondly to guarantee pricing, supply and installation of the final design to meet both architectural and structural requirements.
3. PROJECT OBJECTIVE
To utilize the services of a vendor to provide design assist services, working with the Design Team, for mass timber components of the project and to supply and install the mass timber system for the building.
