Ontario Power Generation (OPG), and their EPC Contractor Bird Construction (Bird) are seeking qualified and interested Indigenous and diverse owned businesses to participate in the construction of OPG corporate campus in Clarington, Ontario.
OPG announced in 2019 that they would consolidate all non-station-based staff at one location: a newly constructed headquarters adjacent to the existing Darlington Energy Complex in Clarington. In October 2021, OPG awarded Bird the design phase of the Engineering, Procurement and Construction contract for OPG’s Clarington Corporate Campus.
The Campus is in the Williams Treaties First Nations territory which includes Alderville First Nation, Curve Lake First Nation, Beausoleil First Nation, Hiawatha First Nation, Chippewas of Rama First Nation, Chippewas of Georgina Island First Nation, and Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.
While still in the engineering and design stages, OPG and Bird are seeking interested Indigenous community member owned businesses, other Indigenous businesses, and minority owned businesses for sub-contracting opportunities in the construction and various support activities required during construction. Bird anticipates the work packages will be ready to tender in July 2022 with construction to begin in early 2023. We are looking for businesses with the following capabilities:
