KEY CONSIDERATIONS

Challenge One

Like many large healthcare projects, this project was procured and delivered within a P3 framework. From a building envelope point of view, the challenge with this type of project delivery method is to balance performance, design, costs, and constructability.

Solution One

We worked closely with Ellis Don and Kasian Architecture from the pursuit stage through construction to develop building envelope solutions that were constructible and budget appropriate, and that also met the stringent requirements of the P3 documents, provincial/municipal requirements, the design intent, and the requirements of a healthcare interior environment.

We accomplished this by being an active team member from the start, using our vast past experience on similar projects, and using analytical tools, such as computer modelling, to evaluate complex details and develop solutions.
