Grandview Children’s Centre Redevelopment

Project Type:
DBF - Design Build Finance
Infrastructure Type:
Children and Youth Services
Contract Value:
$85.3 million

About the Project:

The vision for the new Grandview Kids is to support the seamless and coordinated provision of family-centred care for children and youth with physical, communication and developmental needs and their families in the Durham Region. It will be an open, welcoming and inclusive community based paediatric facility supporting an integrated mix of rehabilitation, medical and clinical services, as well as education and research activities.

Once complete, Grandview Kids will consolidate its existing main site in Oshawa and multiple satellite locations into the new purpose-built facility located on 5.06 acres of land, donated by the Town of Ajax. Grandview Kids will maintain three satellite locations in Clarington, Port Perry and Oshawa and its partnership with the Whitby Abilities Centre to reduce extensive travel times for some clients and caregivers.

Community and Green Benefits

  • The new facility will also provide Grandview Kids the ability to serve more patients and caregivers in Canada’s fastest growing community.

Demonstrating Value

  • The new Grandview Kids is being delivered using a DBF model. Key benefits of a DBF model include significant risk transfer to the private sector over the life of the project agreement, greater cost and schedule certainty and greater potential for design and construction efficiencies and innovation.
  • Based on precedent project experience, a DBF procurement model typically has delivered a value for money savings in the range of 10% to 15% compared to undertaking the same projects using traditional delivery models.
