​“The Milton District Hospital project is a tremendous example of the power of collaborative team work,” says PCL Toronto district manager Kelly Wallace. “The hospital’s recognition of the tight construction schedule and willingness to commence with formal design meetings in advance of financial close demonstrated the respect of positons and interests amongst all parties, which proved to be a critical success factor for the positive outcomes achieved on this project.”
With an air-tight, 25-month design-build schedule executed on an active hospital site, more than 40 PCLers influenced an outstanding safety culture that sent over 600 tradespeople home safely every day, with over 1.2 million hours worked without a lost time injury (LTI).
​“Accomplishing an excess of 1.2 million hours worked without an LTI is a tremendous achievement and I want to thank and each and every person who stepped foot on this construction site for making it their personal responsibility to work safely,” adds Wallace. “As our industry prepares to celebrate Safety Month, this is a testament to our resolve that by working as partners, and not just individual companies, we will achieve our combined vision of ensuring that every worker returns home safely, every day.”
