Bird Construction Inc. has announced that it has executed a contract with Fraser Health through Bird Design-Build Construction Inc. to design and build a new mental health facility and energy centre at Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster, B.C. This news follows successful negotiations with Fraser Health after being named preferred proponent in late December 2016. The contract, valued at approximately $200 million, will commence construction in early 2017 and be completed in winter 2019.

This new 75-bed mental health and substance use centre will be a four-storey building with approximately 13,000-square-metres that will provide both inpatient and outpatient services. The mental health building will target LEED Gold certification and include a two level bridge link to the existing hospital with one level for patient movement and the other for hospital services. In addition, the building will have a multi-level 450 stall parkade to service the campus.

The energy centre is designed to support the needs of the existing campus in addition to the new mental health building, and is sized to support future proposed redevelopment phases. It will also house an IT communication hub which is designed to support Royal Columbian’s future information technology infrastructure requirements.
