Vancouver General Hospital—Operating Room Renewal

Projects / Institutional

Project info

As one of the largest hospitals in BC, Vancouver General Hospital (VGH) has been serving the community for over 100 years, with half of its patients coming from outside the Metro Vancouver area. To further serve the community, the BC government partnered with Vancouver Coastal Health, VGH and the UBC Hospital Foundation to expand the hospital’s capacity with the Operating Room Renewal project.

As a project partner we provided the electrical and technology scope for the roof infrastructure upgrade, operating room fit-out, and chiller upgrade at the Jim Pattison Pavilion North building. This included electrical distribution, lighting, security, and structured cabling with the security system including access control, video surveillance, intrusion and duress systems, and intercom.

This expansion provided support for new communication systems to help health professionals manage activities across two operating floors and provided upgraded infrastructure, additional storage, and new administrative spaces. The project also added 16 new state-of-the-art operating rooms and a 40-bed hospital unit for before and after surgery care.
