Kelowna Hospital - Ambulatory Care

Building Type: Health Care
Project Value: $190 million
Contractor: Graham Construction
Architects: Stantec
Project Status: Completed 2012

Darren Bryson was the Design Project Manager for this Ambulatory Care Centre at the Kelowna General Hospital. The project included a new ambulatory care centre, a new UBC Clinical Academic Teaching Facility and an attached 348-stall parkade.

This complex project was designed and constructed concurrently while preserving 24/7 operations, maintaining site access and circulation to the existing emergency department, construction within constrained site areas, as well as planning, mockup, and construction of technically-complex clinical and support areas including operating rooms, trauma bays, radiology, and medical device reprocessing (MDR) spaces. The buildings utilize the latest in energy efficient and sustainable building design, including high performance building envelope, exhaust air heating boilers, stormwater management, water use reduction, and extensive use of recycle content. Through innovative fast-tracking protocols, the Design-Build team delivered the ACC building 7 months ahead of schedule while the UBC Building and parkade was on schedule.
