Projects / Institutional
The Phil and Jennie Gaglardi Tower is a new patient care tower at Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops, BC. This complex P3 project added 288,472 square feet to the hospital, enhancing the quality and capacity of health care in the region and providing a centralized location for several programs that were previously dispersed throughout the hospital. The project added 63 mental health rooms, 12 surgical suites, 30 general and surgical rooms, 20 maternity rooms, a neonatal intensive care unit, a heli-pad, and two levels of underground parking to the existing hospital.
Our multi-disciplined team provided electrical, security, structured cabling, healthcare technology, and audio visual solutions for this project. We also incorporated our Project Planning Services team and prefabrication to help optimize installation and reduce our on-site footprint. A significant part of this work was the 56 multi-trade racks for hospital corridors that we helped build off-site and lift into place at the new tower. Collaboration with our fellow trades was a key success factor for this project.
