This project consists of a 142,084-square-foot addition constructed adjacent to the existing hospital, and a subsequent 40,365-square-foot phased interior renovation. The addition is a seven-level (one below grade), cast-in-place concrete structure, founded on sensitive shale using conventional footings and rock anchors. There are four radiation treatment bunkers at ground level, all utilizing high-density concrete and other radiation-shielding materials. Also added were four outpatient clinic pods, fifty chemotherapy spaces, and department spaces for systemic oncology and pharmacy. The building is clad in clay brick, stone, curtain wall, and prefinished siding. Two full-height atria and a green roof are additional features.
The phased renovations took place once the hospital staff moved into the new addition. Work included new interior examination, waiting, and administrative spaces. It also included the construction of a new radiation treatment bunker, complete with high-density, cast-in-place concrete walls founded on micropiles. This invasive renovation work was completed within the functioning hospital, in coordination with hospital staff. This project, as with the Queensway Carleton Hospital Cancer Centre project awarded at the same time, incorporates a financing component as part of the total price.
