The Bayers Lake Community Outpatient Centre was recently honoured as a Gold Winner by the 2024 Urban Design & Architecture Design Awards.


The project was recognized for innovation and design excellence. The Outpatient Centre is part of a $2-billion P3 redevelopment of the QEII Health Sciences Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia. HH Angus, in affiliation with Dillon Consulting, provided mechanical engineering, fire protection and plumbing design to the 134,000 ft2 project, which was led by the EllisDon Infrastructure Healthcare Consortium. The design team was led by Parkin Architects and FBM Architects.

A vital community resource, the Outpatient Centre provides essential ambulatory care closer to patients residing outside the Greater Halifax Region. Anticipating 28,000 clinic visits and 30,000 x-ray and blood collection visits per year, the Centre provides a range of patient services that do not require a hospital setting. These include 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).

Episode 8 Energy Master Planning

In a world where energy consumption is a major concern, Justin Lau and Sabari Manoharan, mechanical engineers from HH Angus’ Energy Division, discuss the importance of energy master planning for multi-building and campus infrastructure. They highlight how an energy master plan can help achieve goals like reducing carbon emissions, lowering utility costs, and improving reliability and resiliency. Justin and Sabari explain that energy master planning provides the opportunity to consider current and future expected building uses and loads, up-front capital availability, and timelines to establish appropriate phasing of projects, level of planning and detail design, along with meaningful cost estimates and analysis. They also share some interesting examples of how they had helped clients achieve their energy goals.

HH Angus is a proud sponsor and presenter at the Canadian Healthcare Engineering Society (CHES) Conference on September 17-21, 2022 in Toronto. Two members of our firm will be presenting two different topics at the conference this year.

Akira Jones, Director of our Digital Services group, will be presenting on "The Future of Hospitals: Harnessing Smart Buildings Technologies and Data to Improve Patient Care and Facilities Operations" (September 19, 12:00 – 12:30PM, Track 4B).

This discussion will explore an approach to smart hospital solutions that implement purpose-built small-scale systems on a scalable platform to address specific challenges typically faced by an existing healthcare facility. Akira will use a real-world example to illustrate the opportunities and key considerations focused on updating existing infrastructure.

Marianne Lee will be co-presenting with Jessica Fullerton (The Ottawa Hospital) on “There is Something in the Water. Do you Know What it is and How it Can Hurt You?” (September 20, 13:15 – 13:45, Track 8B).

Plumbing systems in Canadian health care facilities (HCFs) are being recognized for the critical role they play in the day-to-day operations of the HCF. They can be sources of various infectious disease transmission such as CPE and legionella. As such, they must be designed, operated and maintained to contribute to patient and worker safety. This presentation will provide an overview to better understand which various pathogens are present within the plumbing system, the signs and symptoms of an outbreak, and how proper design and on-going maintenance can mitigate the risk in existing, new and renovated HCFs.
