BC Children’s Hospital TECK Acute Care Centre

This P3 hospital redevelopment includes an eight-story, 231-bed, acute care center, clinical and support space, and below-grade parking for 180 cars, all designed for a phased horizontal expansion.  MKA's innovative design saved nearly $3 million by increasing column spacing to a more efficient layout and utilizing a ductile shear wall system to provide open bays and reduced concrete volume.
