WCN Editorial Team 16 Feb 2017 NORTH AMERICA BUILDINGS

Bird Design-Build Construction, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bird Construction, has won a $200M contract to design and build a new healthcare facility and energy centre in British Columbia, Canada.

The project has been awarded by Fraser Health and will be located at the Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster [pictured].

The new 75-bed mental health and substance use centre will be a four-storey building with approximately 13,000 sq m that will provide both inpatient and outpatient services.

The mental health facility will include a two level bridge link to the existing hospital with one level for patient movement and the other for hospital services.

Furthermore, the building will have a multi-level car park with 450 spaces.

The energy centre will support the needs of the existing campus. The project, targeting LEED Gold certification, will also feature an IT communication hub to support Royal Columbian's future information technology infrastructure needs.

Construction work will commence in early 2017 and is scheduled for completion in winter 2019.
