Queen Elizabeth II Health Sciences Centre 

Bayers Lake Community Outpatient Centre 

The Outpatient Centre is part of the $2-billion redevelopment of the QEII Health Sciences Centre. The EllisDon Infrastructure Healthcare consortium led the P3 project. The Outpatient Centre was honoured as a Gold Winner by the 2024 Urban Design & Architecture Awards for its innovation and design excellence. 

The Bayers Lake Community Outpatient Centre in Halifax was built as Nova Scotia’s first public-private partnership (P3) healthcare project and is its largest healthcare project to date.

The Centre provides a range of patient services that do not require a hospital setting, including initial visits with specialists, post-surgery and post-treatment follow-up, blood collection, eye care clinic, physio and occupational therapy, diabetes and orthopedic assessments, rehabilitation services, 17 examination rooms, 24 dialysis stations, and diagnostic imaging (x-rays and ultrasounds). The Centre expects 28,000 clinic visits, and 30,000 x-ray and blood collection visits every year.

 HH Angus provided mechanical consulting engineering to the project, which was completed on time and on budget. Kim Spencer, Director of HH Angus’ Healthcare Division, commented that “we were very pleased to be able to support this new facility with HH Angus’ deep experience in the P3 delivery model, and proven track record of thoughtful healthcare design.” HH Angus acted as the prime mechanical consultant, in affiliation with Dillon Consulting, a local sub-consultant. Our mechanical scope of work included HVAC design, with support from Dillon on plumbing and fire protection.
