The elements of phase 2 will consolidate the activities and services currently spread throughout the different sites of CHU de Québec. This will resolve some problems linked to the multiplication of management systems and to the long travelling distances, leading to improved working conditions for the hospital staff and better quality of patient services and care. A critical care pavilion consolidates the emergency room, the operating theatre, intensive and intermediary care units as well as all related technical platforms within highly functional spaces. The project also included a new research center which contributes to the institution’s influence as an innovation hub for medical research. Finally, a clinical-logistics platform hosts services for pharmacy, catering, storage, printing, and office supplies distribution. The second phase will end with the refurbishment of part of the existing Hôpital de l’Enfant-Jésus.
This ambitious project —whose construction is planned over more than 10 years—, includes different components : the clinico-logistical platform (2020), the Integrated Cancer Center (CIC), a new power plant and generators building (2021), the cyclotron, the research centre and the lodging services (2022), the critical care pavilion (2024), and the refurbishment of the Hôpital de l'Enfant-Jésus (2029).
Within the consortium formed by Groupe A, DMG, Lemay, Jodoin Lamarre Pratte architectes, NFOE and GLCRM, our firm was responsible for programming and designing the CIC. She was also responsible for designing, executing and supervising the construction of the critical care pavilion’s envelope.
