Royal Inland Hospital Patient Care Tower

The new Patient Care Tower (PCT) being constructed on the campus of the Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops, BC will include 13 operating suites and patient floors for mental health and medical/surgical beds, perinatal centre, labour and delivery rooms, and neonatal intensive care unit.

At 290,625 ft2 (gross floor area) of clinical, administrative and support spaces, the new PCT is as a nine-storey building with rooftop helipad and two levels of underground parking, plus new surface parking.  Occupancy is anticipated for 2022.

HH Angus is providing mechanical electrical consulting engineering services, with design targeting LEED Gold certification. The DBFM project be in two phases: Phase 1 is the design and construction of the PCT; Phase 2, slated for 2024, will see extensive renovation and expansion to the existing emergency department, pediatrics, post-anaesthetic recovery and morgue.

The mechanical design for the tower includes energy efficient heating and cooling systems with a variety of heat recovery features. The ventilation design includes redundant capability, outbreak control as well as future flexibility.

New electrical services include 25kV transformers powering the campus in its entirety. New generators will provide redundancy and resiliency to the patient care tower.
