This institute is a major addition to the Hamilton Health Sciences Corporation at the Hamilton General Hospital site. To complete this project, we used an integrated team approach between the contractor, engineer, architects and owners.
The building has a total area of 165,000 sq. ft. over five floors divided between Cardiac and Vascular labs. Also housed within the facility are animal holding vivarium’s and animal surgical and autopsy sites.
Key components this project involved the heliport being relocated from grade level to the roof top of the main hospital. Meanwhile, the main chilling towers of the hospital were relocated and upgraded to a more efficient system. All while designing and constructing the structural, mechanical, and electrical integrity and complexity of the building.
