Project info

The Joseph & Rosalie Segal Family Health Centre (JRSFHC) is a new, eight-storey mental health and addictions facility on the Vancouver General Hospital site. Bringing various services under one roof, including inpatient and outpatient care, outreach programs, and addiction services, the facility provides a safer, healthier environment for patients and healthcare professionals. Key features of the hospital include 100 private patient rooms, each with its own ensuite washroom; dedicated family and visitor space; access to outdoor space with secure rooftop gardens for patient gardening; a new public park; exercise facilities; and quiet places on each floor for reading and meditating.

We worked directly with the general contractor on this project to assist with the electrical design and solve multiple challenges which included: working through scope and design changes within the original schedule, logistical difficulties when making deliveries, reduced ceiling space for services, and creating acoustical separation between rooms.

Our team also provided electrical and technology solutions, including electrical distribution, emergency power systems, lighting and lighting control, fire alarm, clock system, structured cabling and communications, distributed antenna system, audiovisual, and security solutions like access control, video surveillance, and real-time locating systems.
