B.C’s Health minister making an announcement today about the second phase of the expansion at Royal Inland Hospital.
Adrian Dix says, the 417 million dollar project is ahead of schedule
“I’m happy to say that we’re ahead of time, and that I’m pleased to announce the naming of Ellis Don Infrastructure as the preferred proponent for the construction of the new Patient Care Tower at Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops. The naming of the proponent means Ellis Don can now mobilize their construction team, and begin more detailed design work on the tower construction.”
Dix says once the detailed design work is done then construction comes next.
The Mayor of Kamloops is welcoming news the second phase of the Royal Inland Hospital expansion is ahead of schedule.
Ken Christian says the project is not only a big deal from a health care perspective but also for the local economy.
“I’m absolutely delighted that Ellis Don Infrastructure has been selected as the successful proponent for the Royal Inland Hospital. This $417 million dollar project is the largest single building permit that the City of Kamloops has ever issued, and its going to mean a lot of specialized trades jobs all over Kamloops over a four year build.”
Christian says the project should begin to break ground this fall something that will be very exciting for the city and the region.
The Patient Care Tower is schedule to be finished and ready for use by 2022.
