Carillion wins £145m Canadian hospital job

Carillion has won a contract to build and finance a £145 million expansion of the Royal Victoria Hospital in Barrie, Ontario.

About 400,000 square feet of new space will be added to the facility, 45 minutes outside Toronto, almost double the size of the existing hospital.

Carillion has already delivered two major Canadian Public Private Partnership hospitals and is currently building a third.

The latest hospital win follows Carillion’s acquisition of the Vanbots Group, a Canadian construction management services group, in October last year.

John McDonough, chief executive of Carillion, said: “Carillion has enjoyed considerable success in the UK health sector and now we are building an impressive portfolio in the healthcare market in Canada.

“Our latest contract will transform the services the Royal Victoria Hospital can offer to the people of Barrie and we are delighted to have been chosen for this important project.”

Construction of the extension is expected to be completed in the Autumn of 2011, with the significant renovations to the existing hospital completed by Spring 2013.
