Scope of Work

Completed: Work in Progress

Owner: Interior Health Authority

This complex P3 project adds a new 27,000 square metre, 9-storey Patient Care Tower to the existing Royal Inland Hospital campus in Kamloops, BC. This addition will enhance the quality and capacity of health care in the region and provide a convenient location for several programs that were previously dispersed throughout the hospital.

Our multi-discipline team is providing solutions for electrical, security, network systems, health care, and audio visual and working with innovative processes like design planning and prefabrication to optimize project delivery. Collaboration with fellow trades has been a key success factor for maintaining high-quality installations and advancing the project schedule, including the delivery of 56 multi-trade racks.

The scope includes 33 mental health beds, 60 medical surgical rooms, 13 operating rooms (including 2 hybrids), six labour delivery rooms, 14 maternity rooms, a neonatal intensive care unit, helipad, and two levels of underground parking.
