PCL Constructors Westcoast Inc. and CEI Architecture have been named preferred proponent for the Whitehorse General Hospital expansion project. The selection comes after an extensive competitive selection process between three shortlisted teams.
The 40,000 square foot expansion will include a new emergency department and will create a second-storey to house future inpatient beds.
“We are pleased with the progress of the WGH expansion project to date and to have a qualified team to help us continue to move ahead,” says Craig Tuton, Yukon Hospitals’ Board of Trustees Chair. “This project represents the first large-scale enhancement to the hospital in nearly 20 years and will improve and sustain access to quality health services for Yukoners now and into the future.”
Lead Clinical Planner for the project and CEI Partner Troy Ransdell was equally excited by the opportunity and the work completed to date. “The entire project team has had a fantastic experience in creating this design. The Yukon Health Corporation has provided a remarkable opportunity for great healthcare infrastructure and we feel lucky to be part of delivering this vision.”
Completion of the project is expected in December 2017. For more information on the project, please click here.
