Royal Columbian Hospital (Phase 2) Construction Site Tour - BCCR Members Only
Join us for an exclusive members-only site tour of the Royal Columbian Hospital Phase 2 redevelopment. Registration is open for up to 20 attendees (who will tour the site in small groups). Registration will open March 27th.
British Columbia’s oldest hospital, Royal Columbian Hospital is undergoing a significant redevelopment that will be completed in three phases. Phase 2, the acute care tower is currently being constructed by Ellis Don Design Builders (EDDB).
The new 350-bed acute care tower which also includes a new emergency department, surgical suite, radiology and cardiology suites, maternity, paediatrics, and neonatal intensive care units, is directly connected to the existing hospital.
Date: April 13, 2023
Time: 3:30pm (Arrive 15 minutes in advance for a mandatory safety orientation)
The tour will be conducted in an active construction site. Mandatory personal protection equipment (PPE) is required by all participants: CSA hard hat, safety glasses, high visibility vest, and a minimum 6" high, steel toed boots as, well as general purpose gloves. Also of important note, given that this is a hospital project, there is absolutely no food or beverages (other than water) allowed on site as well as no smoking or use of e-cigarettes. Before accessing the site, EDDB will deliver a short safety orientation to ensure that all participants are aware of the procedure in the event of an emergency.
Recommended Access to Site:
There is absolutely no parking on site or in the neighbourhood, however the site is easily accessed by public transit and is adjacent to Sapperton Skytrain station.
We will gather at Gate 6 which is located on the south side of the hospital, off of Keary St, by the Mental Health and Substance Use facility.
