Port Colborne Operations Centre

The City of Port Colborne maintenance operations are currently carried out at two locations: the Central Operations Facility at 11 King Street and Parks Division at the Port Colborne Arena at 52 West Side Road.  In 2008, the City undertook a Study of the facilities and has determined that these facilities are undersized and will require upgrading in order to meet the current and future needs of the City.

As a result, in 2012, the City decided to design and develop a new Operations Centre, replacing the two existing facilities and centralizing the maintenance operations (Parks Department and Public Works yards) at a new location.  This new Operations Centre will be the most cost effective solution to serve the City and the community better with ongoing operation maintenance.

In August 2015, the Corporation of the City of Port Colborne and PRISM Partners Inc. invited submissions from qualified, professional Contractors to complete the construction of a new Operations Centre located at “The Island” just North of the existing Fire Station (No.3 KILLALY Street West) at the intersection of MELLANBY Avenue (Regional Road 3A) and KILLALY Street West (Regional Road 5) in the City of Port Colborne, Ontario.  The Pre-Qualification closed in September 2015 and were reviewed to select 7 contractors to bid on the tender for the Operations Centre.

The detailed design of the facility including tender documents were finalized in early March 2016.  The documents were released to the seven (7) pre-qualified General Contractors on March 15, 2016 and the tender closed on April 19, 2016.

The Base Bid pricing of tender submissions included for all construction and re-instatements related to the Operations Centre project including the Engineering Area (formerly referred to as “shell out” expansion) not including the finishing work for the Interior of the Engineering Area. The tender submissions were reviewed by the City’s Consultants, PRISM and they prepared a Recommendation Letter recommending an award to the low-bidder, JR Certus Construction Co. Ltd.

The tender pricing submitted by JR Certus Construction Co. Ltd. was found to be complete in all aspects, with regard to specifications, details and format. The proposed duration of the project as submitted by JR Certus Construction Co. Ltd. also meets the expected timelines proposed by the City’s consultants for the construction of the Operations Centre.

In following the recommendation of PRISM, Staff recommended that Council accept the lowest priced tender as submitted by JR Certus Construction Co. Ltd. of $10,115,000.00 for Project #2016-12, to allow the City to enter into an agreement with JR Certus Construction Co. Ltd. and to initiate construction as soon as possible.

On May 9, 2016 Council of the City of Port Colborne awarded the Operations Centre Construction to JR Certus Construction Co. Ltd.

Work at the New Operations Centre site has begun. The site is being cleared and the entrance to the site is constructed.

The Operations Centre is expected to be constructed by the summer of 2017.  The City’s Engineering Department will also be moving into the new Facility to accompany the Roads, Parks and Utilities Divisions of Operations.

Below are renderings prepared by the Architect depicting the design of the Operations Centre:

The City's Works Yard is no longer deemed to be adequate for the present operations and Council has agreed that the feasibility of a new facility be investigated, through presentations made at Strategic Planning and budget deliberations. Presently Philips Engineering Limited has completed an Environmental Assessment Study for a new Port Colborne Operations Centre. The Environmental Assessment recommended that a new facility be constructed in the Stonebridge Drive - Port Colborne Industrial Park site.  Currently City Council is reviewing the feasibility of constructing a new site and is investigating funding opportunities.
