Williams Engineering Canada (WEC) provided consulting engineering services for the Stanton Territorial Hospital Upgrades in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. On-going improvements were completed in phases to minimize disruptions within the operating hospital and to stay within the approved annual budget for the work. The health and safety of the patients, nurses, and doctors has been the first priority throughout the design and construction processes.
The upgrades included:
In 2008, our firm started on a program of upgrading various components of the hospital including the replacement of Halon systems; upgrading domestic water valves; installing backwater protection on the sprinkler system; replacing the chillers, VAV systems, Nurse Call system, and the clock system; adding seismic restraints to the building systems; and upgrading the medical gas systems including new oxygenators, and new medical air systems.
WEC was the prime consultant on the addition of a Triage Room and various other renovations to the emergency ward of the Stanton Territorial Hospital. This project was one of the first projects at this hospital to fully incorporate CSA Standard Z317 into practice.
Other Stanton Territorial Hospital projects include the following:
