Join us on Thursday April 28th from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm for a tour of the construction site of BC Children’s Hospital & BC Women’s Hospital + Health Centre, Teck Acute Care Centre with Paul Klimczak, Architect AIBC from ZGF Cotter Architects.
With the support of ZGF Cotter Architects and ZGF Architects in association with CEI Architecture jointly designed the new Teck Acute Care Centre. ZGF and CEI represent the architectural component of Affinity partnership.
Affinity partnership is in charge of design, build, finance and maintenance of the Teck Acute Care Centre for 30 years. The 640,000 SF eight-story facility will include medical/surgical inpatient units, an emergency department, medical imaging and procedural suites, hematology/oncology department and pediatric intensive care units for BC Children’s.
This project is due to be completed in July of 2017 and it is 18 months into a 31 month build schedule. The topping off of the structural concrete happened in February and the project is due to be closed-in at the end of May of this year. Roofing is past halfway and exterior cladding is progressing with all of the exterior assemblies represented on site. Interior construction has begun with stud framing of demising walls on the majority of the floors. Medical gases plumbing and other hospital specific construction are also underway.
The tour will start at the roof and work its way downward in the building from least developed spaces at the building’s top floor to the most developed at the bottom floors with an emphasis on the exterior envelope development and some discussion of planning issues.
IMPORTANT: Please bring your own PPE (hard hat; steel-toed safety boots (over the ankle only-no sneaker type shoes) high visibility vest and safety glasses).
There will be a 15 minute site orientation before the start of the tour so please be at the gate by 5 pm at the latest.
This tour may require the climbing of stairs (the project is 10 floors including the roof) and stepping over obstacles so the site, in short, is not considered “accessible”.
