After achieving the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) Toronto Best Gold Standard earlier this year, EllisDon Facilities Services at Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital and Halton Healthcare have been awarded the 2021 National Earth Award – Health Care Facility section.
The BOMA Canada Earth Awards recognize excellence in resource preservation and environmentally sound commercial building management. Entrants for both the Earth and The Outstanding Building of the Year Awards must also be BOMA BEST Certified.
The Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital facility involved the construction of approximately 1.5 million SF on a 50-acre greenfield parcel of land in Oakville, Ontario. EllisDon was the majority partner of the construction Joint Venture to build this hospital.
The acute care hospital has the capacity for 457 beds. New hospital departments include complex continuing care, rehabilitation, renal dialysis, acute inpatient care, maternal child care, inpatient and outpatient adult, child and adolescent mental health, secondary and tertiary level programs, family rooms, lounges, shower facilities, kitchenettes, and retail services.
The facility buildings include four main sections:
- A five-storey section for complex continuing care and rehabilitation that houses a number of outpatient programs, such as nephrology, and includes the mechanical penthouse;
- A 10-storey inpatient tower section containing patient bedrooms, operating theatres, and pre-and post-operative support functions;
- A four-storey therapeutic and diagnostic imaging section that houses emergency care, diagnostic imaging, ambulatory clinics, maternal/child services, adult mental health and a penthouse; and
- A fourth section serves as the two-storey main hospital entrance and connects the rehabilitation block to the inpatient tower block.
