Reading Time 1 minute read



Infrastructure Québec

Fasken Martineau acted on behalf of Infrastructure Québec in respect of the new Sorel-Tracy correctional facility. The project, valued at about $265 million, contemplates a new correctional facility that will be completed in Sorel-Tracy under a public-private partnership that will provide for design activities, among other things, and such services as operations, maintenance and asset conservation, as well as the financing of such activities. The new facility will have a 300-cell capacity. The partnership agreement’s 30-year term will begin to lapse as of the financial closing date. In the course of this project, the Fasken Martineau team helped review and adapt the proposals; design, draft and amend the partnership agreement and other contractual documents; review and adapt the technical requirements and performance criteria; participated in consultations and workshops attended by bidders; helped process the bidders’ requests for information as well as prepare and execute the financial closing, including the review and comments on ancillary contractual documents and other instruments. The team, led by Andrew Ford, included Daniel Picotte, Martin Racicot and Yolaine Besnard.
