Energy efficiency and sustainable designs were key objectives to the Kelowna and Vernon, BC, healthcare expansions. Our multi-disciplinary healthcare design team’s creative ideas won us this P3 project bid—and we got to work.
We contributed with a complete suite of integrated consulting services—design, engineering, management, medical planning, traffic studies, performance modeling, LEED consulting, and more.
The Kelowna General Hospital Ambulatory Care Centre consolidated, expanded, and modernized outpatient services into one facility. The project also included an on-site teaching facility for the University of British Columbia Faculty of Medicine. The Polson Tower at Vernon Jubilee Hospital included operating rooms, maternity and pediatrics, an intensive care unit, two shelled-in floors for future in-patient beds, and much more.
All three buildings were carefully designed to achieve LEED Gold certification, meeting contractually mandated energy performance targets.
These new facilities fulfill the needs of patients, staff, and communities in the Okanagan while setting new standards for environmentally-conscious practices in BC hospitals.
