Three teams have been pre-qualified to bid on building a new academic support and student services facility at Humber College.

Infrastructure Ontario has selected Integrated Team Solutions, PCL Contractors Canada Inc. and SNC Lavalin Capital.

The new facility will become the main entrance at the north campus of the college in Etobicoke. It will feature group and independent study space, an expanded library, enhanced student services and a student gallery and showcase.

The three teams were pre-qualified based on their design and construction capabilities and experience, and their financial capacity to undertake the project.

The teams will be invited to respond to a request for proposals that will be issued in late June.

Training, Colleges and Universities Minister Glen Murray said he is pleased to see the project moving ahead.

“This expansion will help to meet the increasing demand for postsecondary education across Ontario and ensure that we continue to build a highly skilled and educated workforce.”

Etobicoke North MPP Shafiq Qaadri said the expansion will accommodate new programs and provide a state-of-the-art learning and working environment for students, faculty and staff.

“Projects like these are evidence of our government’s clear commitment to investing in infrastructure in Etobicoke north, creating jobs and spurring economic development.”
