Project Description

Royal Inland Hospital Clinical Services

The Royal Inland Hospital Clinical Services Building represents the first phase of redevelopment at the hospital’s campus in Kamloops, BC. The new LEED Gold targeted facility, funded by the Province and the Thompson Regional Hospital District, includes expanded and enhanced space for outpatient services such as laboratory services, community respiratory therapy, pre-surgical screening, cardiology, neuro-diagnostics and a vascular improvement program. It also incorporates a clinical education teaching space for the UBC Medical School program, 6,500 sq.ft. of ground-floor commercial and retail space, and a 4-storey parkade with 350 stalls. An enclosed pedestrian bridge connects the new building to the existing hospital.

This phase consisted of approx. 50,000 sq.ft. of new construction and approx. 45,000 sq.ft. of renovations to the existing diagnostic and treatment space. The total scope of work includes the following:

  • New Emergency Department
  • Medical Imaging Department additions and renovations
  • Renovations to the pharmacy, cardiovascular, orthopedics, admitting, switch board, administration and nuclear medicine departments
  • Magnetic Resonant Imaging (MRI) component
  • New main entrance to the second floor which includes a medical mall that will service a gift shop, coffee shop and waiting area adjacent to diagnostic and treatment areas

As Owner’s Representative on the project, AME provided Design-Build RFP submission evaluation and recommendation which included planning, review of the indicative design, performance specifications, performance in risk quantification workshops and assistance during project procurement, design and construction.
