Surrey Memorial Hospital – Critical Care Tower

The Surrey Memorial Hospital Critical Care Tower is eight stories in height and includes three parkade levels, a mechanical level, and a helipad. The emergency department housed within the building is one of the largest in BC. Houle provided design-assistance and performed all system installations for the 400,000 square foot building. The construction project was unique having been built beside an existing hospital. Tying the two hospitals together added another level of complexity to the job, which for Houle included power quality, distribution services, network cabling, generators, nurse call, fire alarm systems, access control, CCTV, intrusion, wireless application protocol, real-time location system (RTLS), lighting controls, patient entertainment, intercom, and audio-visual for the new hospital tower.
