Good Shepherd serves troubled youth, abused women and children, the dying, the mentally and physically challenged, the hungry and the homeless. Their ultimate goal is to support people through crisis and assist them in re-establishing healthy and productive lives in the community. For a number of years, Good Shepherd has worked toward development of Good Shepherd Square, a unique campus of residential and social service buildings on an urban infill site in downtown Hamilton, Ontario. When complete, the complex will consist of a Women’s Services Centre and three apartment buildings. In 2009, Good Shepherd awarded the contract for construction of the Women’s Services Centre to Maple Reinders. This 50,000 square foot facility accommodates a variety of services geared to women and children, including temporary housing and counselling services. Soon after starting construction of the Women’s Services Centre, Maple Reinders was retained by Good Shepherd as Construction Manager for the two adjoining apartment buildings. Each apartment building consists of an underground parking garage, open areas on the first floor for ancillary services, and seven stories of residential living. Combined, the two apartment buildings will offer 175,000 square feet of residential and mix-use space. After tendering the project to subtrades and suppliers, the Construction Management contract was converted to a fixed price, with the project completing in the spring of 2012.
