“Fraser Health and Vancouver Coastal Health, along with our strategic partners, are committed to supporting our GreenCare initiative and achieving LEED status for our healthcare facilities. Both of these projects support resilient and adaptive health care design and delivery and are excellent examples of environmentally-friendly buildings .”


SURREY MEMORIAL HOSPITAL EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT AND CRITICAL CARE TOWER Integrated Team Solutions (ITS) is very proud of its partnership with the Ministry of Health of British Columbia and Fraser Health Authority to deliver the state-of-the-art Critical Care Tower at Surrey Memorial Hospital. The Critical Care Tower is part of Surrey Memorial Hospital’s $512-million redevelopment and expansion project. The eight-storey tower includes a new Emergency Department, the second largest in Canada, as well as one of only two Pediatric Emergency Departments in British Columbia. With a commitment to maximizing energy and water efficiencies, ITS designed and built the Critical Care Tower to achieve LEED Gold certification. ITS, the integrated design team led by EllisDon Corporation and Fengate Capital Management, included CEI Architecture and Parkin Architects, working in joint venture, and engineering firm MMM Group Ltd. The new facility incorporates significant sustainable design features to deliver energy efficiency while providing a healthy and comfortable environment for patients, staff and visitors. With priority placed on indoor air quality, natural lighting, and use of wood and natural materials, the Critical Care Tower has reduced its ecological impact, leaving a smaller footprint on the environment while creating a beautifully designed space that focuses on quality care. Other sustainability features include a storm water management system, water-efficient landscaping and provisions for alternative transportation, including electric vehicle charging stations, bicycle storage and change rooms. “Integrated Team Solutions is pleased to partner with Fraser Health and support investments in world class infrastructure projects. The Surrey Memorial Hospital’s Critical Care Tower is another opportunity for our team to deliver state-of-the-art facilities that also help to reduce our country’s carbon footprint.” – Robert Mayhew, Vice President, Facility Management, Fengate Capital Management.
