The hospital project in Terrace, BC was designed to meet the current and future healthcare needs of the region. With a significantly larger size than the existing facility, spanning approximately 356,500 square feet, the new hospital aims to provide a comprehensive range of services.
Some of the key services that will be offered at the hospital include trauma care, orthopedic surgeries, pathology, radiology, and pharmacy services. The facility will serve as a center for these specialized medical services, catering to the needs of patients in Northwest BC.
Additionally, the hospital will serve as a training site for medical students enrolled in the Northern Medical Program. This aspect highlights the facility’s commitment to medical education and the development of future healthcare professionals in the region.
During the construction phase of the hospital, the project faced tight deadlines and significant challenges. To ensure smooth progress and avoid potential setbacks, an internal team utilized Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) technology. By creating an accurate BIM model, the team provided a visual representation of the construction process, allowing for better planning and coordination among various stakeholders.
It is worth noting that an unexpected addition to the project was the inclusion of an upper-level neonatal care service. This service was not initially considered when the construction contract was signed, resulting in an additional cost of $10 million. Despite this change, the project budget remained at $632.6 million, with the additional funds allocated for the neonatal care service.
Overall, the new state-of-the-art hospital in Terrace, BC aims to meet the growing healthcare demands of the region, provide specialized medical services, and contribute to medical education through its association with the Northern Medical Program. The utilization of BIM and VDC technology played a crucial role in ensuring efficient construction and minimizing potential setbacks.
