Due to the ongoing operations of the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital, daily communication with the hospital’s maintenance staff, doctors and nurses was a priority for Bird’s site staff to ensure that the effects of construction had a minimal impact on hospital operations.
Air-tight negatively pressurized hoarding was used to keep the facility weather tight, as well as dust-free and special procedures were implemented to minimize noise. Existing electrical and mechanical systems were decommissioned, replaced where necessary, expanded and commissioned to suit the new operating suites.
