Site preparation underway at new building for Kamloops hospital
Site preparation for the Clinical Services Building at Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops, B.C. has begun.
The $79.8 million project includes excavating the front lawn of Royal Inland Hospital and relocating hydro and other utility services to prepare for construction starting next spring.
Construction is estimated to take two years to complete. Following the invitation to tender issued to pre-qualified contractors, the contract for site prep was awarded to Delnor Construction in August.
In addition to the site work, Interior Health is in the process of selecting a preferred proponent to design and build the new Clinical Services Building.
The request for proposals for the design/build was released to three shortlisted proponents at the end of August. The successful proponent is expected to be chosen in the spring.
