Only ten months after the start of construction, both structures are well on their way to completion and move-in by late 2017. Later this summer, roughly a year after construction began, crews will finish concrete pouring for the two structures, an impressive 18,000 cubic metres of concrete – or 1,800 truckloads – for the new Comox Valley Hospital, and 15,000 cubic metres of concrete – or 1,500 truckloads – for the new Campbell River Hospital. All 33,000 cubic metres of concrete is coming from local companies. Cumberland Ready Mix is supplying the concrete and trucks for the Comox Valley Hospital while a local joint venture between Uplands Ready Mix and Island Ready Mix is supplying the concrete and trucks for the new Campbell River Hospital.
The North Island Hospitals Project is also providing many training opportunities. There were 81 apprentices working for the hospitals project in April, including plumbing, carpentry, iron workers and electrical. There were also just a shy of 400 workers working on the construction sites in the month of April.
The $606.2 million North Island Hospitals Project includes a new $331.7 million, 153-bed Comox Valley Hospital in Courtenay on Lerwick Road near Ryan Road, and a new $274.5 million, 95-bed Campbell River Hospital on the existing hospital site at 375 – 2nd Avenue. Both hospitals are scheduled for completion by late 2017.
