Canada’s SNC-Lavalin has been awarded three contracts by the Société Québécoise des infrastructures (Quebec Infrastructure Corporation) expand hospitals in the province of Quebec.
The company will expand and modernise the Hospital of Chicoutimi, Sept-Îles Hospital, and the Charles Le Moyne Hospital, all with a focus on operating rooms and specialised care units.
Over the next five years, SNC-Lavalin’s Engineering Services group and its consortium partners will provide design and engineering, site surveillance, building information modelling management, and value engineering.
Project teams based in Montreal and Quebec City will be composed of structural, civil, mechanical, and electrical engineers with hospital project experience.
“Expansion and modernisation work at these three hospitals will measurably increase capacity and improve patient care in the province,” said Ben Almond, SNC-Lavalin’s Engineering Services chief executive. “Our track record executing projects such as these in Quebec is well known as we have delivered much of the province’s healthcare infrastructure. And as hospital emergency room capacity remains strained across Canada, we are ready to support other public sector partners with expansion and optimization projects.”
