Bird, Clark, Carillion to build Yellowknife hospital
October 7, 2015 by STAFF REPORT
The Boreal Health Partnership consortium has reached financial close of a contract to design, build, finance and maintain the Stanton Territorial Hospital Project located in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories.
Boreal Health Partnership is a consortium consisting of Carillion/Hochtief/Bird Capital as the Equity Providers; Bird Construction, Clark Builders Ltd. and Kasian Architects as the Design Builder and Carillion Canada Inc. as the Service Provider.
The new hospital is located adjacent to the current facility. It will include a floor area of over 280,000 square feet and will offer outpatient and inpatient services including emergency, medical imaging, dialysis, obstetrics, pediatric, cardio and mental health departments as well as day procedure and surgery suites. Specific enhancements will include:
- All inpatient beds will be replaced with single inpatient rooms
- A new and larger emergency department
- A new and larger medical laboratory, and additional space for diagnostic imaging
- Enhanced medical technology to modernize hospital operations.
“Bird is very excited to begin work on site” said Ian Boyd, President and CEO of Bird. “The project presents a number of unique design and execution challenges. By providing an entirely new facility, we can deliver the project faster and with minimal disruption to services. As well, a ground-up design approach provides the maximum opportunity to create a facility which best meets the requirements of the residents of the Northwest Territories and the Kitikmeot Region of Nunavut.”
“This is a major step to ensuring the residents of the Northwest Territories will benefit from a state-of-the-art hospital built to current national standards,” said Northwest Territories Finance Minister J. Michael Miltenberger. “Construction on the new hospital, which will start this fall, will see the current facility replaced by a new purpose-designed facility that will address patient needs and provide high-quality health care delivery.”
