Project info

Royal Columbian Hospital provides critical care to more than a third of British Columbians. The hospital is one of only three regional hospitals in the Fraser Health region that offers primary, secondary, and tertiary services, and is the only hospital in the province with cardiac, trauma, neurosciences, high-risk maternity, and neonatal intensive care all on one site. 

The hospital is undergoing a three-phase redevelopment that will enhance its ability to prove lifesaving care. With elevated patient-centered care, new advanced medical technologies, updated buildings, and an increased bed capacity of 50 percent, Royal Columbian Hospital will be ready to address the recent increase in patient volumes. 

We’re currently involved with Phase Two of the Royal Columbian Hospital Redevelopment Project, which includes transforming the hospital campus to make way for a new 10 storey state-of-the-art Acute Care Tower. 

The new tower includes:

  • Emergency Department with 75 Treatment Rooms
  • Surgical Interventional Department 27 Operating/Interventional Rooms
  • Critical/Intensive Care Unit (60 Beds)
  • Maternity (28 Beds)
  • Neonatal Care Unit (24 Beds)
  • 5 Levels of Medical Surgical Inpatient Rooms
  • Roof-top Heliport
  • Medical Device Reprocessing
  • Support Services
  • 2 Levels of Underground Parking

We’re providing electrical construction, fibre optics, and structured cabling services to build the hospital’s new Acute Care Tower. To enable construction, a temporary support building is being installed along with the completion of the Phase One Energy Centre and Campus Communication Hub that includes:

  • 12.47 kV Utility Service
  • Two 3000 kW Generators
  • Two High Voltage Transfer Switches
  • High Voltage Distribution
  • Two 550kW UPS Systems
