Federal contracts: Ottawa’s G. Bird Holdings gets $6.7M for Tunney’s Pasture strategy

Default image

The slow-moving plan to redevelop the office complex at Tunney’s Pasture inched forward late last month after the federal government contracted a firm to prepare a “phasing strategy” to guide the process.

Consultants have been working on a redevelopment plan for the sprawling complex since at least 2009. Five years later, the National Capital Commission approved a vision for the property that included housing units, retail space and new office buildings.

In a solicitation notice published last August, the federal government said it needed “an innovative scheme that builds upon” that vision.

Late last month, it said it awarded a multimillion-dollar contract to G. Bird Holdings Inc. to prepare “a development phasing strategy that will guide future investment and divestiture decisions for Tunney’s Pasture through the continued implementation of the overall Tunney’s Pasture Master Plan.”

It was one of the largest federal contracts, standing offers and supply arrangements awarded to local firms between Jan. 23 and Jan. 29:
