THE COWICHAN DISTRICT HOSPITAL REPLACEMENT PROJECT
The KDC is proud to be partnering with EllisDon and Hall on the Cowichan District Hospital replacement project. This new hospital will be 3 times the size of the current facility, and will be primarily powered by clean electricity. This means the development will be both more energy and water efficient, and will lower its GHG emissions by at least 75% compared to the current building.
The facility will also include culturally safe services and spaces, including areas for ceremony, quiet reflection, gathering spaces for larger families, and ongoing cultural safety training for people involved in the build and day-to-day hospital operations.
We have been contracted by EllisDon to do the grubbing and clearing as the first phase of the Cowichan District Hospital rebuild project, and Khowutzun Forestry Services have also been brought on board to do the falling on site. We also anticipate working alongside Houle Electric on this project. Construction officially began on Oct 2, 2022, and we look forward to being involved throughout the civil phase as well.
