Toronto Community Housing Corporation (TCHC)
MCW/CES is performing the Building Renewal Program (BRP) for Toronto Community Housing Corporation (TCHC). This agreement with TCHC is a unique business arrangement under which MCW/CES provides a turnkey service to improve the building systems and infrastructure, and raise the level of energy efficiency in existing buildings. The service involves energy and renewal analysis, engineering, construction, financing, operator training, project documentation and building maintenance. The TCHC project entails a four-year program of energy retrofits and building renewal to nine TCHC developments across Toronto.
MCW/CES has been pleased to work with all our contractors throughout the construction phase of each contract. We want to continue to work closely with each contractor through the closeout stage to ensure the smoothest and fastest road to receiving holdbacks is taken – with the fewest number of bumps along the way.
To assist in those efforts and to attempt to make it as easy as possible for the contractors we work with, we have created a website that reiterates and provides the step-by-step procedure we expect and contractually require each contractor to follow. We have provided sample and template documents that you can download right off the website, we try to answer some commonly-asked questions in the FAQ section, and we provide contact information in case you have additional questions.
In the case that you’re a contractor and partner with MCW and still require assistance with completing the closeout stage requirements, we will be available to set up an appointment to assist. At the appointment we will be available, at an hourly rate, to help the contractor finalize all steps until they are at a stage that TCHC approves closeout completion and releases the holdback payment.
We look forward to working with the contractors through this closeout process to ensure that complete understanding of the process is acquired. We hope the initiation of this website will assist in providing clear and simple direction of the steps required to receive holdback payment. We are here to help you at all stages.Contractor Closeout Requirements (click to access list of Closeout requirements)
