The new building will be located at 600 Montée Saint-François in Laval, Quebec.

The new IHC will consist of approximately 8,080 square meters of floor space for accommodations, administrative spaces, support spaces and special purpose spaces. 
This new building will include all typical building components, namely the infrastructure, superstructure and building envelope, interior design, mechanical and electrical services as well as equipment and specialized furnishings. Specific security-related work involves CCTV, access control and communications systems, among others. The layout of the site includes outdoor parking, courtyards, signage, civil works, landscaping, etc.

The work must be completed within 104 calendar weeks of receipt of the official contract award notice. The deadlines for the commissioning are included in this construction period, as well as public holidays.

- SECURITY Requirements:
This document contains security requirements. 
The Contractor/Offeror must, at all times during the performance of the Contract, hold a valid Designated Organization Screening (DOS) and a "Document Safeguarding Capability (DSC)".  Also, the employees of interested entrepreneurs and their subcontractors must hold a Reliability security status, issued by the Canadian Industrial Security Directorate (CISD), Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC).

Therefore, it is mandatory that interested entrepreneurs hold a corporate reliability status called "Designated Organization Screening (DOS)" and a "Document Safeguarding Capability (DSC)" and this at bid submission.

It is to be noted that any subcontractor (particularly for areas related to access control systems (doors) and CCTV systems (cameras)) required to perform any part of the work during the performance of the subsequent contract must also adhere to the mandatory security requirement of the contract. As well, no personnel without the required level of security will be allowed on site. It will be the responsibility of the successful bidder to ensure that the security requirement is met throughout the performance of the contract. The Crown will not be held liable or accountable for any delays or additional costs associated with the contractor’s non-compliance to the mandatory security requirement. Failure to comply with the mandatory security requirement will be grounds for being declared in default of contract.
