A hospital expansion and redevelopment project is on the search for design and construction teams in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan.
The Government of Saskatchewan has released a request for qualifications (RFQ) looking for teams interested in leading the design and construction project at Prince Albert Victoria Hospital (PAVH). The scope of the project includes a new multi-level acute care tower addition, plus the redevelopment and renewal of the existing hospital space. It is expected the new tower will be built first, with the renovation and redevelopment of the existing space to follow.
Following the close of the RFQ in February 2022 and evaluation of the submissions, a shortlist of up to three proponents will be invited to proceed to the next stage of procurement. A request for proposal (RFP) is currently planned for release in spring/summer 2022.
When finished, the project will provide a larger emergency department, enhanced medical imaging services, and a 40 per cent increase in the number of hospital beds to 242 from 173, with shelled space to allow for future expansion. The province will pay 100 per cent of the capital cost of the project. The local community and Victoria Hospital Foundation will raise funds for furniture and equipment.
This project demonstrates a shared commitment to Truth and Reconciliation through the partnership between the Government of Saskatchewan, Saskatchewan Health Authority, and Prince Albert Grand Council to ensure culturally appropriate services and spaces are part of this project.
The RFQ is available at sasktenders.ca.
