Madonna Long-Term Care Facility

Client: Sienna Senior Living
Completed: 2007
Project Value: $19 MILLION

Located in the Orleans area of Ottawa, this 3-storey, 95,000 SF long-term care facility with 160 beds is a spacious and vibrant home for residents. It is situated on the edge of an
escarpment ridge, providing residents a beautiful view of the Ottawa River and Gatineau Hills. Offering 24-hour nursing care and supervision within a secure setting, this residence was funded in part by the Ministry
of Health and Long-Term Care and is further subsidized by resident co-payment. The facility was developed and constructed by Amico, and purchased and now operated by
Sienna Senior Living.

Scope of Services: As the Developer, Amico submitted to the Ministry of the Environment for approvals as well as liaising with MOHLTC officials and local authorities. As Construction Manager, Amico worked together with the consultants in value engineering the building to ensure enhanced constructability. Amico was also responsible for overseeing the management of the construction process, including controlling the project schedule and budget, tendering and directing subcontractor work, ensuring quality control, document control, and implementing site safety. The project was delivered in accordance with CSA Z8000 for Canadian Health Care Facilities.

Project included developing and constructing the new Madonna building on a greenfield space next to the existing two-storey LTC building.

Once the new building was complete, Phase 2 consisted of a covered walk-way being constructed in between the new building and existing LTC. Residents of the existing LTC were transported from one facility to the other using the covered walkway.

Once this phase was complete, Amico demolished the existing 60,000 SF, wood frame building, a process which also included environmental assessment and asbestos abatement.
