After more than two years of negotiations which have not been fruitful, MHIG now has no other choice but to turn to the courts, as the agreement provides, said a statement.
Under its agreement with the MUHC, MHIG is responsible for financing, designing, building and maintaining the hospital complex as well as managing its assets until 30 September 2044.
MHIG said that it delivered a quality, functional complex to the MUHC in accordance with the conditions and schedule set out in the agreement.
"Several times during the Project, the MUHC did not provide equipment lists and specifications in a When the actual equipment selected by the MUHC was finally communicated to MHIG, this necessitated expensive changes to designs and construction work to accommodate the selected equipment, it added.
MHIG also claims that MUHC misused the review procedure.
By misusing the review procedure, the MUHC required MHIG to change several aspects of the design despite the fact that the design submitted by MHIG met the requirements set out in the agreement, and this resulted in additional costs and delays which had to be made up by MHIG to meet the project deadline.
The changes requested by the MUHC also had considerable impacts on the management and maintenance of the hospital assets, as these activities are directly affected by the size of the complex and the type and number of equipment items and systems included in the facility, said MHIG.
It said that most of the many changes required were requested at a point in time in the building process that had a major negative impact on MHIGs work and resulted in considerable amounts of incremental cost and lost time and productivity.
