CALGARY, ALTA. – PCL Construction Management Inc. (Calgary) has been awarded a $1.1-billion design-build contract for the new Calgary Cancer Centre project.
The centre is PCL’s largest design-build lump sum project to date. The new facility will measure over two million square feet, including a 1,650-stall underground parking garage and a 984-linear-foot elevated walkway that connects with existing facilities.
"PCL is honoured to be leading the team that will bring this world-class facility to Calgary, knowing that we can help make a very real difference in our community to cancer patients and their families," said PCL president and CEO Dave Filipchuk in a statement. "Our company takes pride in all of the projects we build, and the Calgary Cancer Centre will be another exceptional facility where our health care building expertise shines through."
There will be 160 inpatient beds, 15 new radiation vaults, outpatient cancer clinics, a clinical trials unit and research laboratories.
The vision for the centre is to deliver leading comprehensive cancer care that integrates patient- and family-focused care, education, prevention, screening and cancer research.
It will also be one of the most energy efficient hospitals in North America, explains a release, and LEED Silver certification is targeted.
PCL stated it will be working with the province and local partners DIALOG and Stantec on this project.
Construction will begin in late 2017 and is scheduled for completion in 2022.
