New Ontario Science Centre facility coming to Ontario Place

The Ontario ministry of infrastructure has issued a request for qualifications for a new Ontario Science Centre facility on the mainland at Ontario Place in Toronto.

The request for qualifications is to design, build, finance and maintain the project.

Earlier this year the provincial government announced that the centre be would move to a custom-built, state-of-the-art facility at the redeveloped Ontario Place. The site’s existing Cinesphere and Pod complex will also be preserved, updated and integrated into the new facility.

The planned building will feature sustainable building principles, and will be designed and constructed for certification in LEED, energy use intensity (EUI), operational and embodied greenhouse gas intensity (GHGI), and thermal energy demand intensity (TEDI).

Construction is expected to begin on the facility in 2025, with the opening scheduled for 2028.

The Ontario Science Centre opened in Toronto in 1969 as one of the first interactive science museums in the world. It welcomes approximately one million visitors annually at its current location.
