Client: Ellis Don Construction / St. Joseph’s Health Care
Project Location: London, Ontario
The new Surgical / DI Building at St. Joseph’s Health Care (London) provides state of the art operating rooms, recovery areas, as well as suites for day surgery.
NA Engineering Associates Inc. were selected to undertake site review of the complete building envelope; foundation waterproofing, exterior insulation and finish system, commercial glazing / curtain wall, and roofing.
A distinctive look and a brand, new building connected to a very old, existing building presented a number of challenges to construct an airtight / leak free building. As with any new construction project, when certain systems need to be installed, conditions must be provided to ensure proper application. Winter work, necessitated heat and hoarding being required and application of the EIFS had to be monitored closely to ensure proper installation.
Over 2 years in construction, the final product is an outstanding addition to London’s Healthcare network. A strong design, quality contractors, and reputable material and system suppliers worked closely to ensure a building that will provide many years of comfortable service for building users.
