Project info

The new Cowichan District Hospital (CDH) in Duncan, BC is under construction to meet Island Health’s commitment to deliver seamless, patient-centred health services to people across Cowichan communities. With capacity for 204 beds, the new CDH will be the first fully electric hospital in BC and is being built to LEED® Gold (Version 4) standards. Located on the unceded traditional territory of Cowichan Tribes, culturally safe spaces will be included in the building to accommodate traditional healing practices, cultural practices, traditional foods, a Gathering Space, Indigenous Kitchen, Indigenous Health department and more room for loved ones to support patients. For more info, visit islandhealth.ca/newcdh.

As design-assist partners, we’re providing virtual design and construction support (VDC) with BIM 3D modelling technology to ensure our systems integrate seamlessly with the building’s mechanical and architectural features.

During construction, with support from our Project Planning and Prefabrication teams, we will deliver electrical and technology solutions including electrical distribution, lighting, fire alarm, security, structured cabling, and healthcare technology. Our technology scope includes access control, video surveillance, intrusion, networks, nurse call, wired duress, RTLS, and public address systems.

Renderings are artistic renderings – details are being finalized during design and construction.

trauma and resuscitation room, an isolation room, a psychiatric observation room,
and an ambulance garage. The new ICU has five exam rooms, two of which are
designated as isolation rooms, and a private waiting area for families.

Through extreme weather like heat domes and massive snowfalls, we delivered
electrical and technology solutions on this project, including electrical distribution,
lighting, security systems, structured cabling, and public address systems. This
included two new 300kW generators, a highly customizable DALI lighting control
system, over 660 luminaires, an upgrade to the existing distribution system, an
additional switchboard, 14 distribution panels, two ATSs, and two new transformers.

Project info

The Joseph & Rosalie Segal Family Health Centre (JRSFHC) is a new, eight-storey mental health and addictions facility on the Vancouver General Hospital site. Bringing various services under one roof, including inpatient and outpatient care, outreach programs, and addiction services, the facility provides a safer, healthier environment for patients and healthcare professionals. Key features of the hospital include 100 private patient rooms, each with its own ensuite washroom; dedicated family and visitor space; access to outdoor space with secure rooftop gardens for patient gardening; a new public park; exercise facilities; and quiet places on each floor for reading and meditating.


We worked directly with the general contractor on this project to assist with the electrical design and solve multiple challenges which included: working through scope and design changes within the original schedule, logistical difficulties when making deliveries, reduced ceiling space for services, and creating acoustical separation between rooms.


Our team also provided electrical and technology solutions, including electrical distribution, emergency power systems, lighting and lighting control, fire alarm, clock system, structured cabling and communications, distributed antenna system, audiovisual, and security solutions like access control, video surveillance, and real-time locating systems.
