PCL Constructors Canada Inc. (Toronto), announced that it has achieved substantial completion on the Milton District Hospital expansion project.

The project included a 21-month design-build schedule executed on an active hospital site with more than 600 tradespeople working more than 1.2 million hours without a lost time injury (LTI).

In its role as design-builder as part of the Plenary Health team, PCL coordinated consultants, subcontractors and specialty providers for all phases of project delivery. In addition to the more than 600 workers on site daily at the peak of construction, the major partners involved in delivering the project on time and on budget under Infrastructure Ontario’s Alternative Financing and Procurement (AFP) delivery model include Halton Healthcare (owner), Plenary Group (project sponsor, equity investor and financial arranger), B+H Architects and RTKL Associates (architect), Johnson Controls Canada (facilities management), Smith and Andersen (mechanical/electrical consultant, and Parsons Brinkerhoff Halsall Inc. (structural consultant).

Halton Healthcare now has full access to the expansion and will begin preparing the space for occupancy. The hospital is expected to begin providing patient care services in the new space in fall 2017.
