National Trade Centre at Exhibition Place (Enercare Centre)
Lester B Pearson International Airport Redevelopment
Terminal 3 Expansion and Infield Development
This $180 million Design Build Project involved the development of a new Trade Centre in the heart of the City of Toronto. At over 1 million square feet this facility is Canada’s largest trade show space and opened in 1997.

Key to the selection of the successful team included Schedule, Price and Urban Design. Urban design was key due to the signature location of the facility.
The Infield Development was a $300 million Design Build Project required to move existing land uses away from the planned expansion of the Passenger Terminal as a component of the $4.4 Billion redevelopment of Canada’s busiest airport. The Infield Development was
designed to have a ten gate temporary passenger terminal (to provide swing space for the airport redevelopment), major cargo handling facilities, airport equipment maintainance facilities, a new hangar for wide body aircraft and Airline Catering Kitchens. The Design
Build delivery was used to utilize its early development period schedule and cost certainty traits.
The $300 million expansion of Terminal 3 added substantial new gate capacity, expanded passenger processing capacity as well as high level security screening capabilities to the existing terminal developed in the late 1980s. This project utilized a series of design-bid-build
contracts to complete the program of requirements.
