Healthcare projects have long been more complex than other construction types, with an extensive and ever-expanding list of variables to consider, on top of often ambitious schedules and the integration of cutting-edge technologies.
Today, patient focused care is driving diversification and specialization of services and decentralizing their delivery closer to patients. Other significant shifts include Covid-19’s impact on infection control and building in flexibility in healthcare facilities, robotics and tele-medicine, long-term care for an aging population, and climate change – all are factors driving innovation in creating more resilient infrastructure.
BTY brings expertise rooted in more than 40 years of experience to solving the complexities of healthcare development from pediatrics to senior care across North America and internationally.
The firm’s wide-ranging expertise covers healthcare project support from developing the business case and providing Cost Planning, Project Management and Schedule Management, to serving as Technical Advisors and Independent Certifiers.
BTY has contributed to an equally wide range of project types, from new builds of hospitals and integrated healthcare campuses to redevelopments, expansions, renovations, and upgrades of long-term care facilities and out-patient clinics.
This combination of expertise in conception-to-completion services and range of experience on different project types has positioned the firm as a first choice among healthcare authorities, and is reflected in the number, variety and locations of projects and services BTY is currently engaged on.
Infrastructure Advisory across North America and Europe
The firm is providing Infrastructure Advisory and Cost Management services for the new St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver, which will be one of North America’s largest integrated healthcare campuses. Other current healthcare projects include:
• Cortellucci Vaughn Hospital in Ontario, Canada’s first smart hospital
• Community Nursing Units at seven locations across Ireland
• A regional emergency hospital in Brasov, Romania
• Ongoing advisory services at multiple integrated healthcare campuses in Turkey, where BTY has contributed to more than five such developments
19 current mandates for Project Management in healthcare
One of BTY’s more recent Project Management (PM) mandates – out of 19 current engagements in healthcare – is serving as the Project Manager for the development of the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario’s (CHEO) integrated care centre for kids, in partnership with Colliers. CHEO’s 1Door4Care P3 project is setting a new precedent for children’s care through a new state-of-the-art facility.
BTY’s PM projects in Ontario include Baycrest Hospital, University Health Network, Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences, Holland Bloorview Rehab Centre in Toronto, St. Patrick’s Senior Living in Ottawa, Golden Plough Lodge in Cobourg, Golden Manor in Timmins, and Smith Falls Health Centre.
Other PM healthcare mandates include the St. Paul’s Hospital Entrance Renovation in Saskatoon, and two Urgent Care Centres, one in Saskatoon, and one in Regina. BTY is working on seven outreach centres to support unhoused and vulnerable populations across the Lower Mainland. We are also facilitating the decommissioning of 12 mass immunization clinics; all of which BTY had originally managed the delivery of on behalf of local health authorities.
Cost Management engagements coast to coast
BTY is also providing Cost Management and Project Controls on some 35 separate long-term care facilities across Canada, including 15 for a nationwide provider, 9 in Quebec, 8 in BC, 2 in Ontario and 1 in Saskatchewan.
Hospital projects relying on BTY Cost Management services include a new in-patient centre and operating room renewals at Vancouver General Hospital, Emergency Room renewal at the Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre in BC, and the Prince Albert Victoria Hospital and Weyburn Hospital projects in Saskatchewan.
