Renovation project in basement corridors of Women's, Children's

Plant Engineering will begin work the first week of February on a renovation project in the basement corridors of the Women’s and Children’s Hospitals.

This project will update the corridors that provide exiting egress to the exterior of the facility. This work will bring all our building exits up to current building code standards. Some rerouting of travel will be necessary to allow for these construction areas. Planning meetings have already been held with impacted departments. For the general public and other Hospital staff, signage will be posted.

All of our buildings were built to code at the time of construction. However, over the decades since some of our older buildings were constructed, building codes have evolved to increase the level of safety.

Future phases of this project will be announced to allow for changes in travel routes through the hospital. We apologize for the inconvenience and plan to keep disruption to a minimum.

Thanks,

Plant Engineering
