WT Partnership was engaged by the Department of Health (formerly the Department of Human Services) to provide full quantity surveying services through the master plan, feasibility, pre-contract, design, construction and post contract phases of the project.
WT provided cost estimates and planning, quantity surveying and cost management services throughout the bid, design and construction stages, including insurance claim management and dispute resolution expert reports.
In April 2019, the provincial government of Newfoundland and Labrador selected NL Healthcare Partners to design, build, finance and maintain the Gander and Grand Falls-Windsor Care Homes project in a public-private partnership.
The first phase constitutes of the Patient Care Tower - this will include the design and construction of single-patient rooms that will modernize the Royal Inland Hospital's standard of care congruently ameliorating working conditions. The second phase, Phase 2, will focus on the renovation and expansion of the emergency services department and the addition of new parking stalls.
The Project will result in the construction of approximately 655,000 square feet of new build space, which will include: 235 in-patient beds; ambulatory programs; the relocation of the emergency department to the Queen Street site; research and educational facilities; information and resource facilities; and site improvements, including parks and green space improvements.
