Stantec joins Infusion Health consortium on P3 hospital project
Stantec has been named part of the Infusion Health consortium engaged to deliver the largest single investment on record in the health system for the interior of British Columbia. The $432.5-million expansion project is being undertaken as a Public-Private Partnership (P3) between Infusion Health and the Interior Health Authority of British Columbia.
Stantec is designing several facets of the project, including the architectural, mechanical, electrical, structural, civil, and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) consulting services for both the Kelowna and Vernon hospitals. Infusion Health is a joint venture of Bilfinger Berger Project Investments and John Laing Infrastructure. The construction partners include Graham Design Builders and the facilities management service provider is Black and McDonald Limited.
The new patient care tower at Kelowna General Hospital (KGH) will include a new consolidated outpatient department, emergency department, operating rooms, a rooftop helipad, two shelled-in floors for inpatient beds, and a clinical academic campus for a University of British Columbia (UBC) faculty of medicine.
The tower at Vernon Jubilee Hospital (VJH) will expand and modernize services for patients, including new operating rooms, new emergency room, a new intensive care unit, a new maternity and pediatrics ward, an expanded and a consolidated outpatient department.
Stantec has been involved in other major P3 projects including the Anthony Henday Ring Road in Edmonton, Alberta, the Britannia Mine, Kicking Horse Canyon transportation improvements, as well as the Abbotsford Hospital and Cancer Centre.
