Projects / Institutional
Two new hospitals were built to benefit Vancouver Island patients living in the Comox Valley, Campbell River, and surrounding communities. The 153-bed Comox Valley Hospital in Courtenay comprises a total of 428,700 square feet while the 95-bed hospital in Campbell River comprises a total of 348,000 square feet.
As a design-assist partner, we delivered the installation, integration, and commissioning of electrical and technology systems for the two hospitals. With the challenge of integrating 33 systems together it required over 13,000 network connections, which was the highest level of integration ever performed at a Canadian hospital.
The systems included access control, video surveillance, intrusion, panic, intercom, public address, real-time location, nurse call, radios, infant protection, and wander prevention. Thanks to the incredible coordination of our talented technology team and programmers, we were able to ensure proper connectivity and functionality across all systems to meet the project schedule.
