The Kingston General Hospital Redevelopment project included 170,000 square feet of new additions and 143,000 square feet of phased renovation work in the existing facility. This complicated build-finance contract consisted of 31 phases, which, in many cases, involved working in close proximity to operating suites and intensive care units.
Renovations to the Kidd Wing added new in-patient pediatric and oncology wards, as well as completely revamped the intensive care unit and central processing services. In the Burr Wing, the PCL team constructed new mental health and dialysis treatment units, and new radiation and chemotherapy treatment areas.
A significant milestone achieved on the project was the successful execution of 1,050 separate system shutdowns to tie in new building services without disrupting hospital activities. By developing strong relationships with consultants and hospital staff, and by working as a team to optimize the complex phasing strategy, PCL delivered this project a full five months ahead of schedule.
