The new St. Paul’s Hospital announces Design Builder

Posted On: Tuesday February 9, 2021

PCL Construction has been selected to build the new St. Paul’s Hospital at 1002 Station Street in Vancouver. The selection of PCL Construction follows an extensive evaluation of two teams shortlisted in the fall of 2019 to design, build and partially finance the new hospital.

Construction is expected to begin early this summer and completion is expected in late 2026.

St. Paul’s Hospital will continue to operate at full capacity at its current site on Burrard Street until the new hospital is fully operational and ready to welcome patients.

It’s anticipated final terms of the contract will be complete and signed off by the end of February 2021. Renderings of the new hospital will be made public after the agreement is finalized. 

A fairness advisor, John Singleton, Q.C., of Singleton Urquhart LLP, was appointed to oversee and monitor the entire procurement process to ensure it was fair and followed the requirements outlined in the request for proposals. The report of the fairness advisor concluded that the process for selecting the preferred proponent was fair, reasonable and appropriate.

As part of Providence Health Care, the new St. Paul’s Hospital will continue the tradition of providing patient and family centred health care to all British Columbians.
