Building a world-class children's hospital
The Alberta Children’s Hospital is a world-class pediatric health care facility located on the University of Calgary’s West Campus. The hospital is approximately 750,000 sq.ft. and accommodates approximately 60,000 visits per year. Doctors, nurses, parents and children contributed to the design of the hospital.
T&M was the Electrical Construction Manager for this project. The project was delivered under budget and ahead of schedule. Fun fact: If all the electrical work was completed by one person, it would have taken them 26 years to do it. We’re glad to have had 160 electricians working on site.
