The Kaye Edmonton Clinic is 677,000 square feet and over eight floors, with a nine-story parkade. More than 2000 health science professionals operate out of the facility, serving an expected one million patients annually. To accommodate specialized medical equipment and the necessary mechanical and electrical services, the building is designed to service mechanical and electrical systems through interstitial floors, thereby eliminating effects on the clinic’s operations. The Kaye Edmonton Clinic provides a one-stop outpatient experience that guides patients and their families through assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and education in a single visit. It is the place to which patients, their families, and their community-based health providers can turn for timely, specialized services.
As with the Edmonton Clinic Health Academy, the client had concerns about the impact of construction on local traffic and the surrounding community. PCL participated in town-hall meetings to hear concerns, then helped develop a successful traffic logistics plan. PCL also developed a 4D (pictorial time-based) schedule for the building structure, and held numerous planning sessions with subcontractors, resulting in successful just-in-time material deliveries and building completion. PCL’s risk manager and estimators expanded their budgeting and estimating calls to global regions, meeting the client’s budget expectations.
