Parkwood Hospital Campus
The redevelopment of St. Joseph’s Health Care’s Parkwood Hospital campus is among the most expansive civil works projects in the City of London’s history.
Completed in advance of the proposed Regional Mental Health Care (RMHC) Facility construction, the enabling works were vital to accommodate displaced parking, provide the required road configuration for streamlined traffic flow, and upgrade and extend services to the proposed RMHC facility. Substantial components of Phase 2 included site servicing, stormwater management facilities, roadways, a parking garage, power plant expansion and utility installation.
Construction logistics related to the configuration and maintenance of existing services and utilities proved to be the greatest design and construction challenge. An aggressive implementation schedule required completion of servicing and grading design at the front end of Phase 2, as part of the City’s Site Plan Approval process. Our engineering team delivered a practical servicing design despite complicated field conditions, logistical considerations and budget constraints.
