Carillion wins PPP deal in Canada

Carillion has won a £306M contract, similar to the UK public private partnership, to design, build and maintain a Forensic Services and Coroner’s Complex in Canada.

Joint venture Carillion Secure Solutions will run the project, and finance it, with work due to start in August and finish at the end of 2012.

Ontario’s Centre of Forensic Sciences and its Office of the Chief Coroner will be based in the complex of offices, autopsy suites, labs and two inquest courtrooms.

Carillion will sort out debt finance and put £11.8M of equity into the work. The firm said it will be responsible for the construction work, managing the facilities and repair services in a 30-year contract, which will pocket the firm around £306M.

“We are delighted to have achieved financial close on this prestigious project, which further reinforces our leading position in the PPP market for social infrastructure in Canada, where we have established a very strong track record,” said Carillion chief John McDonough.
