Evolve has been selected to provide technical advisory services for Electrical, IT, and Security Systems for the Cowichan District Hospital (CDH) replacement. The proposed new facility is expected to more than double the size of the existing hospital in Duncan.
We are very appreciative of the opportunity to work alongside our peers in a top class Owner-Consultant team. Evolve will carry forward its technical expertise and lessons learned from the $600M North Island Hospitals project and continue to develop Island Health’s technical standards and best design practices for acute care community hospitals.
Evolve will be providing technical support and input during the 12 month business planning stage in which the project scope, budget, and procurement method will be determined.
Preliminary design work will include site servicing, electrical and life safety system design, communication systems, clinical systems, security systems and design of highly efficient facility infrastructure.
The existing 134 bed Cowichan District Hospital is over 50 years old and faces capacity issues daily. Construction of the new facility is anticipated to begin in 2021. The new facility, located on Bell McKinnon Road, will serve the Cowichan Valley for decades to come.
