Sinai Health System
Mount Sinai Hospital, Joseph and Wolf Lebovic Complex which is part of Sinai Health System, is as an internationally recognized 442-bed acute care academic health sciences centre affiliated with the University of Toronto.
This project is a large-scale renovation of several key areas of Mount Sinai Hospital, including the redevelopment of the Critical Care Unit expansion and redesign of the Emergency Department, Operating Rooms and Surgical Services increased Medical/Surgery Inpatient capacity redesign of some of the Ambulatory Care areas redevelopment of a full-service, in-house Medical Devices Reprocessing Department.
There were several major interventions that involved structural modifications and additions to the existing hospital building. Most notably is the addition of a new service space built over the existing emergency driveway utilizing a structural steel frame supported mostly on the existing foundation infrastructure. This also included the replacement of the suspended concrete slab that supports the driveway due to significant deterioration from chloride penetration. The hospital operations remained active during the construction activities which resulted in a structural solution that incorporated the staging of construction.
* This structural design was led by Brian van Bussel while with a previous employer.
