A LEED-Gold certified eight-storey tower, which will contain the new emergency department is being constructed at Surrey Memorial Hospital. Additionally, it will add 151 beds, 48 private rooms for neonatal services, an expanded laboratory, a rooftop helipad, 440 new parking stalls, and space for the hospital’s clinical academic campus. Under the partnership model being used, ground preparation and external construction can begin while design and working drawings of the interior are being completed, resulting in an efficient construction and design process. Fraser Health has had good experience with P3 projects in the recently opened Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre and the Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre.
Construction began in 2011. The emergency department was completed in 2013, and the remainder of the tower will be completed by March 2014 and occupied by clinical programs by June 2014.
