Royal Columbian Hospital Redevelopment Phase 1

The RCH Redevelopment Project will be phased to allow for continuity of hospital services throughout construction, demolition, and renovation work. Due to the complexity involved in this multi-phase, multi-year project, work has been broken into three separate phases:
As the first step in this multi-phase, multi-year project, Phase One provides foundational elements for the site in preparation for subsequent phases. The work to be completed in Phase One includes:
• A new 75-bed mental health substance use (MHSU) building of approximately 13,000 BGSM;
• An energy centre, including fit-out of equipment required to service the MHSU building and existing campus;
• Four levels of underground parking, providing 400+ parking stalls for the campus;
• Associated tunnel and bridge connections to the existing campus;
• Civil construction of a campus IT network perimeter pathway system connecting the communications hub to the buildings and third-party structures, and which will be used for the installation of the fiber optic ring;
• Conversion of most of the campus from steam to hot water;
• Upgrades to campus-wide systems including humidification and electrical power; and
• Fit-out of the campus communications hub.
