PCL Construction Management Inc. (Calgary) has been awarded the $1.1 billion design-build contract for the new Calgary Cancer Centre.
The project is the international Edmonton-headquartered contractor’s largest design-build lump sum win to date, PCL says in a news release. The new facility will measure over two million square feet, including a 1,650-stall underground parking garage and a 984 linear foot elevated walkway that connects with existing facilities. There will be 160 inpatient beds; 15 new radiation vaults; outpatient cancer clinics; a clinical trials unit; and research laboratories.
“PCL is honored to be leading the team that will bring this world-class facility to Calgary, knowing that we can help make a very real difference in our community to cancer patients and their families,” said PCL president and CEO Dave Filipchuk. “Our company takes pride in all of the projects we build, and the Calgary Cancer Centre will be another exceptional facility where our health-care building expertise shines through.”
The vision for the centre is to deliver leading comprehensive cancer care that integrates patient- and family-focused care, education, prevention, screening, and cancer research. It will also be one of the most energy efficient hospitals in North America, and LEED Silver certification is targeted.
Local partners DIALOG and Stantec are also working on the project.. Construction will begin in late 2017 and is scheduled for completion in 2022.
