HAMILTON, ONT. — B+H Architects and mcCallumSather have been announced as the planning, design and conformance (PDC) team for the West Lincoln Memorial Hospital project in the Niagara region.
The PDC team will be responsible for developing project documents including output specifications that will form the guidelines and performance requirements the successful building team must meet when preparing the design, stated a recent release. The PDC team will also monitor construction progress and provide co-ordination and oversight during commissioning, completion and transition to the new hospital.
Project proponent Hamilton Health Sciences and Infrastructure Ontario are scheduled to issue a request for qualifications for the project in early 2021.
The West Lincoln Memorial Hospital project will involve constructing a new, larger hospital on the property behind the existing facility. Features will include acute inpatient beds, a 24-hour emergency department, maternal and newborn services, day surgical services including endoscopy and minor procedures, increased outpatient care space, and advanced diagnostics including X-ray, mammography, echocardiography, ultrasound and a CT scanner.
The project will be delivered under Infrastructure Ontario’s public-private partnership procurement model.
“We are thrilled to continue growing our relationship with Hamilton Health Sciences and to be a part of such a great team to move this integral project forward,” said mcCallumSather CEO Joanne McCallum in the statement.
“Together with mcCallumSather, B+H raised the bar for sustainability at Mohawk College’s Joyce Centre for Partnership and Innovation and were instrumental in the design of the Juravinski Centre for Integrated Care,” added Chris McQuillan, principal at B+H Architects.
