Nanaimo cancer centre project issues construction manager RFP

Nanaimo cancer centre project issues construction manager RFP

NANAIMO, B.C. – Island Health and the BC Cancer have issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for a construction manager for the new BC Cancer centre at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital (NRGH).

Submissions to the RFP are due by July 15 and the construction manager is expected to be selected by August with construction expected to begin by summer 2025. The project’s budget is approximately $289 million.

The centre will be built next to the ambulatory care building and will house a computed tomography (CT) simulator, a PET/CT diagnostic scanner and an oncology ambulatory care unit with 12 examination rooms, four consultation rooms, and space for medical physicists and radiation therapists.

The centre will also have four linear accelerator vaults, which are heavy concrete structures containing radiation equipment used in the treatment of cancer patients.

“For such a complex and important project, it is vital we work with a construction firm with the experience and talent to deliver. Moving to RFP for a construction manager marks an important milestone in our commitment to improving health outcomes for people affected by cancer on central and northern Vancouver Island,” Island Health board chair Leah Hollins said in a statement.

Upgrades to NRGH have also been approved, such as a new single-storey addition to the ambulatory care building that will be home to a new community oncology network clinic and expanded pharmacy, the release said.

The upgraded clinic will have 16 treatment bays, private consultation rooms, a medication room and support space.
