Stantec to lead PDC team for new Groves hospital
Stantec Architecture has been selected to lead the planning, design and compliance (PDC) aspects of the new replacement Groves Memorial Community Hospital.
The project involves the construction of a new hospital in Aboyne, Ont., between Elora and Fergus, to replace the existing Groves Memorial Community Hospital in Fergus.
Highlights of the project include:
- Building on an existing model of care that links traditional hospital-based acute care services with community-based services to achieve an enhanced continuum of care;
- Providing a framework to address future flexibility and changes in technology;
- Providing facilities that meet infection prevention and control standards and reflect best practices and evidence-based design;
- Providing services within a model of care to accommodate projected needs-based demographic changes.
The PDC team will prepare key documents that will establish the guidelines and performance requirements that must be met by the successful building team when preparing its designs. The PDC team will also monitor construction progress and provide coordination services and oversight throughout the course of the project.
Once the PDC aspects are complete, the hospital and Infrastructure Ontario (IO) will issue a request for qualifications for a consortium to design, build and finance the project using the Alternative Financing and Procurement (AFP) model.
