The enlargement of the Cummings Pavilion E and the Dialysis Unit has not only helped relieve overcrowding but also provided space for the new Comprehensive Cancer Centre, the new Cardiovascular Sciences Centre and 12 new dialysis stations.
Pavilion E had to remain in continuous operation and uninterrupted access to existing floors maintained throughout the project. As always, safety, security, meticulous site housekeeping, dust control and noise control were of paramount concern to the team.
The project involved the:
- Retrofit of the 1st basement, main floor, 1st floor and 2nd floor;
- Enlargement of the 3rd floor mechanical room;
- Modification of certain elements of the existing facade;
- Addition of 8 floors on top of the existing building: mechanical, 3 floors of Ambulatory Services, 2 floors of research laboratories and 2 floors of base building;
- Construction of a link on three levels between Pavilion E and the Lady Davis Research Institute;
- Supply and installation of furnishings, equipment and specialized medical equipment.
The project was fast-tracked to meet the tight schedule. The team also delivered the quality and functionality objectives close to 8% under budget.
