Phase 2 Feasibility Study

Led by Conrad Boychuk of CEI Architecture, assisted by Ron Bidulka of PricewaterhouseCoopers, Adam Rose of Thunder Bay's True Grit Consulting Ltd., and Alun Lloyd of the B.A. Consulting Group, the consulting team will be responsible for:

Ron Bidulka of PricewaterhouseCoopers, whose expertise on arena projects helped salvage another otherwise dreadful detail-deprived presentation from municipal administration, argued that there is no other way.

"Quite fundamentally, these buildings do not make enough to cover their cost of debt," he said after the meeting. "That's the case right across the board, and I've done twenty buildings in Canada."
"The situation here in Fort McMurray, I think, is similar to what we did in London (Ontario)," he added.

Bidulka said during the meeting it would be a minimum of two years before construction could begin on the site.
...
During his presentation, Bidulka put forward a hybrid of the design, build, lease model.
...
The city operates it for a period of time," Bidulka explained.
At the conclusion of the lease, the city would hand Tribal Partners the keys to their building. At the same time, Tribal Partners ground lease would expire and they would gives the building back to the city.
"... And the city ultimately runs and operates the facility that way," Bidulka said.
Under this model, Tribal Partners, as owners and constructors of the facility, would be "required to identify, design and construct any required risk mitigation systems (vapour barriers, venting systems, etc.)," states the PwC report.
PwC consultants believe this would be better from an ongoing risk perspective as the city would have more flexibility if it owned the property, he said.
PwC is recommending the city not purchase the site "as is," Bidulka said, adding if the city did they would be taking on ongoing risk associated with getting it ready for development.
PwC has gained legal advice on how the city ensures they are purchasing a clean site from Tribal Partners.
"... The condition of closing would be that any environmental contamination on the property has been remediated to the satisfaction of an environmental engineer who would provide an opinion to the city to that effect," Bidulka said.
Mitigating the brownfield site risks would be dictated by the terms and conditions agreed upon between the city and Tribal Partners, Bidulka said.
"Are you able to 100% mitigate them? I don't think the answer to that is yes," he said.
The economic benefits of building a recreation facility is generally limited, however developing a 120,000 square foot wellness centre/office building and an OPP detachment would make the "spin off" more valuable than the James Street location, Bidulka said.
In his report, Bidulka said approximately 40,000 square feet of the wellness centre/office building have been committed to.
Tribal Partners consultants have said under full occupancy, the property taxes would be $880,000.
To ensure the city gains these economic spinoffs, Tribal Partners should be required to construct the wellness centre/office building at the same time as the recreation facility is built.
"If they're effectively promising that they will build that facility at the same time I believe there should be a penalty that says if it's not open then they owe you whatever the difference in the property taxes are," Bidulka said.
He said if the city owns the site it can solicit bids for the facility's development.
"The other thing that you need to understand is that if you did go out to invite competitive bids, or you built the facility yourself, so therefore Tribal is not selected as a partner in this project will they be as committed to developing the wellness centre, or the office building or the OPP detachment on the other portions of this site? Bidulka questioned. These are "all considerations that you need to have regard to from a perspective or partnering or not..."
Orillia politicians against the 174 West St. S. development have raised concerns over sole sourcing with Tribal Partners.
Bidulka said, no matter what, the city cannot get around sole sourcing if they partner with Tribal Partners.
"You can try to mitigate some of the effects by hiring your own project manager, construction manager to oversee the design, the sourcing, the competitive tendering of the various aspects of the deal, but you can't get around the fact that its been sole sourced," he said.

Bowen said he would like to see the environmental concerns solved sooner, but also wants it done right.
"I don't want a white elephant in an area that cost us a lot of money, but isn't productive," he said.
