Bird Construction Inc. has been awarded two new projects including a construction management services contract for 185 Enfield Place Project in Mississauga, for approximately $107 million for GWL Realty Advisors (GWLRA).
The second is a stipulated sum contract for the Louvre Residence at Century Park Project in Edmonton, Alberta for approximately $57 million under development by Procura Real Estate Services Ltd. Construction on both projects is scheduled to commence in the second quarter of 2020.
The Mississauga project includes a 35-storey, 366-unit tower with approximately 26,000 sq. m. of gross floor area. A five-storey podium space and four levels of underground parking are also planned and the design will feature modern suites, dynamic floor plans, indoor and outdoor amenities, professional management and unparalleled access to the surrounding community and the wider Greater Toronto Area. The new building is to be constructed to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold standards.
The Louvre is a new concrete and wood framed, mixed-use residential project comprised of 358 residential dwellings and over 800 square metres of commercial space. The building will be seven storeys tall (three concrete, four wood frame), with two levels of parking.
It will also feature an interior courtyard and shared amenity space for its residents and is part of the greater development of Century Park and will be completed in 2022.
“These two projects will add a combined $164 million to Backlog in the second quarter of Bird’s 100th year of operations in Canada,” said Bird president and CEO Teri McKibbon.
“They are both great examples of Bird’s discipline in contracting projects that are geographically diverse and balanced in terms of their risk profile.”
