    GRAHAM BIRD, P.Eng.

    Personal Profile

    Over the last 35 years, since graduating from Queen's University in Civil Engineering, Graham Bird has had the great privilege to help build different parts of Ottawa -- to imagine what could be, to work with visionary partners, and then together, to build and achieve that vision.

    Graham is particularly adept at managing complex redevelopment projects, on time and on budget. He enjoys projects that are difficult, that call for new age solutions, and marry partners in law, finance, design, construction and all levels of government. He likes to do the projects that others may think are impossible, that takes him to the edge of his imagination.

    Graham has gained tremendous redevelopment experience over the years, and knows the importance of creating innovative business cases, in establishing thorough technical, legal and financial agreements, in transferring risk, and drawing out the very best of both sides in a public private partnership. Graham has played a leading role in the redevelopment of Canada Post's national headquarters, the World Exchange Plaza, the Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport, the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre, and many other major projects in the National Capital Region. He is tremendously proud of his recent project management of the new Ottawa Convention Centre, a stunning, iconic building unlike anything Canada has even seen. Ottawa has been revitalized with the intricate installation of over 1,000 glass panels to create a futuristic crystalline orb in the midst of the city's downtown core.

    Currently Graham is working for the City of Ottawa as project advisor for the redevelopment of historic Lansdowne Park, one of the most complex redevelopments the city has ever done.

    During the past 15 years, he has played an integral role in creating and developing complex development projects using the 'public private partnership' or P3 methodology. He is President of GBA, a development and project management company which focuses on alternative financing solutions. GBA's motto is – Imagine. Partner. Build.

The technical, legal and financial agreements were complex and extensive, an integral part of GBA's management responsibilities.

    Interprovincial Bridge between Ottawa and Gatineau

    This Environmental Assessment (EA) Study is a component of the long-term transportation planning by the Federal, Provincial and Municipal authorities in the National Capital Region (NCR). The purpose of this Study is to assess potential interprovincial bridge locations and the corridors leading to and from them.

    A new bridge will be an important addition to the Region’s landscape and will shape the development, growth and vibrancy of the area, for well into the future. As the Region will experience considerable increases in population and employment, a new bridge will be essential in helping to alleviate transportation issues resulting from that growth. In addition, there are major commercial and social exchanges between Ontario and Quebec, and specifically between the Cities of Ottawa and Gatineau. A new bridge will be a major facilitator for a more integrated economy and an enhanced cultural and social cohesion between both cities. [ more ]
