Metrolinx and Infrastructure Ontario (IO) have selected Scarborough Transit Connect as the development partner ((known as the “Dev Co”) to enter the development phase of the Stations, Rail and Systems (SRS) contract for the Scarborough Subway Extension project. The SRS package for the Scarborough Subway Extension is being delivered using a Progressive Design-Build (PDB) model.  

Scarborough Transit Connect is comprised of leading companies with the expertise to deliver a subway project:  

  • Applicant Leads: Aecon Infrastructure Management Inc., FCC Canada Ltd. 
  • Design Prime Team Member: Mott MacDonald Canada Limited 
  • Construction Prime Team Members: Aecon Infrastructure Management Inc., FCC Canada Ltd.  

The scope of work includes:  

  • Design and construction of three new underground stations and bus terminals at each station. 
  • Design and construction of emergency exit buildings and service buildings, and traction power substations. 
  • Installation, testing and commissioning of all systems equipment and interconnection with existing TTC systems. 
  • Design, supply, installation, testing, and commissioning of all rail and track components and a pocket track east of Kennedy Station. 
  • Coordination with the Advance Tunnel contractor on remaining work.  

The Progressive Design-Build model incorporates a multi-stage design process called a development phase. This phase allows for a collaborative approach between the project owner, the contracting partner and other stakeholders who work closely together to finalize the scope, risk allocation and pricing of various elements of the project. Currently, the development phase for SRS is anticipated to be completed in approximately 18 to 24 months. Once the development phase has concluded, Metrolinx and the Scarborough Transit Connect team will then have the option to sign a final agreement to proceed to the construction phase, which would include agreements on detailed designs and a negotiated price.

Sewer

Strabag has secured the EUR54 million (CAD 79 million) contract to build the Mid-Halton Outfall Tunnel in Canada. The project centres on the excavation of two 60 m deep shafts and a 6.3 km rock-bored tunnel that is designed to carry treated effluent water from the water treatment plant in Oakville into Lake Ontario. The Mid-Halton Outfall Tunnel will consist of two reaches: The onshore reach will span 4.1 km, while another, 2.2 km reach will be built offshore, ending in a diffuser array beneath Lake Ontario. A TBM with an excavation diameter of 3.6 m will drill through mainly layers of shale and limestone. Construction is set to begin in mid-July 2014 and is expected to be completed within 39 months.
