LESSONS LEARNED FROM THE GATINEAU 2
PROJECT FOR BOTH FUTURE P3 PROJECTS AND
THOSE USING OTHER PROCUREMENT MODELS:
SET EXPECTATIONS from the start of the
procurement process and include completing
research to establish what can feasibly be
achieved in terms of emissions targets and
energy use in both the construction and operation
phases. This should be included in the project
business case prior to going to the market.
DURING PROCUREMENT, open discussions with
bidders are needed to clarify expectations, how
performance will be measured and where risk
is apportioned. Innovative solutions can be
submitted as options with the RFP response.
DURING CONSTRUCTION, commitment to the
outcomes established in the procurement
phase must be maintained. Change required
during construction should not compromise the
THROUGHOUT CONSTRUCTION and operations,
performance measurement and reporting must be
established and maintained in accordance with
the contract requirements.
Library and Archives Canada’s new state-of-the-art Preservation Storage Facility
in Gatineau is the first purpose-built federal facility constructed to meet the
requirements of Canada’s Greening Government Strategy.
