Women's College Hospital has announced its preferred proponent to build its state-of-the-art new building. The Women's College Partnership is made up of Bilfinger Berger, an international construction and services company, Perkins Eastman Architects, IBI Architects, Walsh Group and Bondfield for construction with Black & Macdonald as contractors. The names involved attest to the great complexity of the project.

The new building will be built on the east side of the hospital’s current site on Grenville Street, and work will begin in late 2010. It will be a two-phased building process beginning with the closure and demolition of the parking garage. The first phase of the hospital will rise up where the parking garage was located. During the second phase, hospital clinics and services will move into the first section of the new facility. When the final phase of construction is complete, most hospital services will be in one location.
