P3 consortium completing large New Oakville Hospital on time
Construction of a new 1.6-million sq.ft. hospital in Oakville, Ontario reached substantial completion in July, on schedule after four years of construction.
The New Oakville Hospital in the commuter belt west of Toronto is located on a 50-acre greenfield parcel of land at Third Line and Dundas Street.
Hospital Infrastructure Partners was the P3 consortium selected in 2011 by Infrastructure Ontario and Halton Healthcare to design, build, finance and maintain the hospital.
The $2.2-billion facility has a capacity for over 450 beds. It has three main sections accessible from a two-storey main entrance. A 5-storey section houses complex continuing care and rehabilitation and the mechanical penthouse. A 10-storey tower has in-patient bedrooms, operating theatres and their support areas. Lastly a 4-storey therapeutic and diagnostic imaging section includes clinics, maternal/child services, adult mental health and a penthouse. The building is designed for LEED silver certification and is constructed using conventional techniques, such as a pre-cast concrete and glass curtain wall. There is also a six-level parking structure.
Hospital Infrastructure Partners is a consortium that includes Carillion Canada, EllisDon, Fengate Capital Management and Parkin Architects in joint venture with Adamson Associates.
