Institute for Advanced Medicine at HSC

Project Overview

The Institute for Advanced Medicine at Health Sciences Centre is a hub for innovative medical technologies in Manitoba and Canada. This 89,555-square-foot building houses some of the industry’s newest equipment, including a cyclotron, an Artiste linear accelerator (LINAC), a high-energy X-ray machine that does surgeries without cutting, and operating rooms with real-time MRI. To construct the cyclotron and LINAC bunkers, the project team ensured radio-magnetic and radiation shielding by using two types of high-density concrete.

PCL’s expertise in planning, scheduling, and managing was required during this project, as construction proceeded with virtually no available space for delivery or storage. The project team had to precisely coordinate and communicate the delivery and installation of all materials and equipment in the building because there was nowhere onsite to store anything.
