The groups are Acciona-Ghella Joint Venture, Broadway Connect and West 9th Partners. A proponent will be chosen by mid-2020.
The province has chosen three teams to bid on a chance to design, build and finance the Broadway subway in Vancouver.
A request for qualifications closed on April 17.
The $2.83-billion, 5.7-kilometre extension of the Millennium SkyTrain line will run from VCC-Clark Station to the intersection of Broadway and Arbutus and have six stops. Because the project is using SkyTrain technology, it will be built by the provincial government instead of TransLink.
The three teams are: Acciona-Ghella Joint Venture, Broadway Connect and West 9th Partners. It is expected that the province will select a proponent by mid-2020.
Acciona-Ghella Joint Venture includes Acciona Infrastructure Canada Inc., Ghella Canada Inc., IBI Professional Services (Canada) Inc., DIALOG BC Architecture Engineering Interior Design Planning Inc., Mott MacDonald Canada Ltd., Ingenieria Especializada de Obra Civil e Industrial, S.A., Parsons Inc. and Corporacion Acciona Infraestructuras, S.L.
Broadway Connect’s team is made up of Dragados Canada, Inc., Aecon Infrastructure Management Inc., ACS Infrastructure Canada, Inc., Aecon Concessions, a division of Aecon Construction Group Inc., Dragados, S.A., Aecon Group Inc., Hatch Ltd., WSP Canada Inc., Dr. G. Sauer & Partners, VIA Architecture, Wood Environment & Infrastructure Solutions, a Division of Wood Canada Ltd. and SENER.
West 9th Partners is four divisions of SNC-Lavalin.
The project will be covered by the province’s community benefits agreement, which sets out wages and hiring procedures, requires a percentage of workers to be apprentices, and gives hiring priority to women and Aboriginals.
Early works have already started for the project, including installing new poles and wires to allow for temporary detours for three trolley bus routes during the construction.
Construction is scheduled to start in 2020 and be completed in 2025.
