To accommodate the new oncology unit at the Moncton Hospital, construction of a new wing in place of the former laboratory and X-ray wings was required. Renovations were also completed in the adjoining area to the new clinic, providing new office space. Bird was engaged early during the design phase and worked closely with the design team and the equipment providers to ensure seamless coordination throughout the project.
As an additional contract, Bird renovated the angiology suite operating room. As all existing operating rooms remained operational, stringent infectious control measures were exercised. Noise levels and vibration levels had to remain at a minimum and cease during surgeries, often leaving the team to complete work during the night. Negative air pressure machines, HEPA filters and fans were used to maintain clean air flow and prevent contaminated air from being released into the surgical areas.
