CCW Site Tour - Lions Gate Hospital Power Plant Replacement

Join us for a site tour of the Lions Gate Hospital Power Plant Replacement project in North Vancouver on Tuesday, May 28th!

The Lions Gate Hospital Power Plant project consists of the construction of a new underground power plant, followed by the demolition of the existing plant. The new 4,575 sq. ft. power plant will be built in preparation for the new acute care tower and involves a large mechanical scope of work. Numerous considerations were taken into account to coordinate construction activities; the protection required on the existing glazing, noise mitigation for the hospital staff and the local community, and the requirement of the nearby roadway to be accessible for
weekly tank filling. 
Fibre optic cables and gas mains had to be relocated, an existing storm and sanitary line needed to be removed and capped at the power plant footprint, and the existing water service was required to be rerouted.
