Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre

Project Overview

The Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre was the first public-private partnership hospital built in British Columbia, and the first LEED Gold-certified hospital in Canada. This 300-bed, five-storey facility provides health services to more than 150,000 people in the Abbotsford area, and up to 330,000 people in the Fraser Valley. A cancer treatment center, run by the BC Cancer Agency, has been integrated into the hospital's design to provide diagnosis and treatments such as MRIs, radiation, and chemotherapy.

PCL took extra steps during construction to ensure the integrity of the design and schedule. Building full-size mock-ups of two hospital rooms, for example, brought the plans to life and demonstrated the way a typical patient room would be constructed, from framing to final finishes. This extra step proved invaluable in helping consultants to verify the function of their design, allowing user groups to confirm their requirements, and confirming that the drawings were being interpreted correctly. Thanks to this value-added initiative, the team recognized early on that extra coordination was necessary for certain installations, and that stud depths had to be increased at specific points.
