Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal/Health and Wellness

March 2, 2017 11:14 AM

The province continues to move forward with planned renovations to the Halifax Infirmary building of the QEII Health Sciences Centre and updates to the operating room at the Hants Community Hospital.

A request for proposals for project management services for the planned renovations at the two hospitals was issued today, March 2. The projects are part of the QEII redevelopment project.

The services required include coordinating and managing the Halifax Infirmary and Hants Community Hospital from design to building to completion.

The Halifax Infirmary includes renovations to the third floor to allow the relocation of two interventional suites from the fifth floor. The fifth floor will then be renovated to include two new operating rooms. One of the rooms will be a hybrid that will allow the use of advanced diagnostic imaging equipment during the most complex procedures.

The Hants Community Hospital renovations include upgrading a currently inactive operating room.

The deadline for submissions is March 30. Details of the request for proposals are available at novascotia.ca/tenders/tenders/ns-tenders.aspx.

The QEII redevelopment project includes the expansion of the Halifax Infirmary, along with improvements to the Dartmouth General Hospital, the Hants Community Hospital and other sites that will support the eventual closure of the Centennial and Victoria buildings in Halifax.
