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.

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.
