BC Children's and BC Women's Hospital Redevelopment Project

Design, build, financing and facilities management for a hospital in Vancouver

In 2014, Balfour Beatty was selected as the preferred bidder and reached financial close for BC Children’s and BC Women’s Hospital Redevelopment Project Phase II – a c.632,000 sqft children’s hospital with 180 spaces of below grade parking. Construction promptly began May 2014 and the new facility is expected to be completed in 2017. The new facility will include a children’s inpatient unit, emergency department, medical imaging, surgical suite, hematology/oncology, intensive care, high-risk labour and delivery suite and much more.

Following construction, the concession will run for a period of 30 years. Affinity Partnerships (Partnership formed of Balfour Beatty Investments and Ledcor Developments) will finance the project and CWH Facilities Management (partnership formed of Balfour Beatty Communities and Black & McDonald Limited) will participate in a 50:50 joint venture to deliver facilities management services.

The BC Women’s Hospital Redevelopment Project Phase II, now known as the Teck Acute Care Centre, will bring patient- and family-centered care to a new level with new medical/surgical inpatient units, emergency department, medical imaging and procedural suites, a hematology/oncology department and a pediatric intensive care unit. The building is set to meet or exceed Canadian Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold standards.

The redevelopment project focuses on a new, sustainable design of the hospital which will provide many benefits including improved care and long-term cost savings. The approach to the design and build has been patient- and family-centred understanding that a healing and nurturing environment is a key element of building a socially sustainable hospital and inherently important to a facility that strives to improve the health and wellness of its community. The community has been involved every step of the way from patients naming the construction cranes to life-size cardboard cutouts and full-scale mock-ups to tour and test drive.

Fall 2015, the Affinity team – the joint partnership between Balfour Beatty and Ledcor – received the 2015 North American Occupational Safety and Health award for the BC Children’s and BC Women’s Redevelopment Project Phase II. The award, presented by the British Columbia chapter of the North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH), recognizes the hard work and dedication to communicating the importance of safety and health on the job.

On October 29, 2017, the BC Children's and BC Women's Hospitals officially began welcoming patients into their facility. 

The hospital has several supporters, including artist, Michael Buble. Click here to watch a video tour he narrates of the newly built areas.
