PCL Construction Management Inc. has been selected to complete the design and construction of the new Calgary Cancer Centre.
The build will cost $1.4 billion and be open to the public in 2023.
“Our government is working to make life better for Albertans, that’s why we are investing in new schools, hospitals, personal care homes, and this long-overdue cancer centre for patients and families in Calgary and Southern Alberta,” said Premier, Rachel Notley. “I’m so proud to see this badly needed new Cancer Centre take its next step. The choice of the successful design and builder means shovels will be in the ground later this year. Congratulations to everyone involved.”
The visionary Calgary Cancer Centre (CCC) design integrates patient and family-centred care, education and cancer research into a single state-of-the-art facility.
Services at the new cancer centre will include:
- outpatient cancer clinics
- more than 100 patient exam rooms
- 160 inpatient unit beds
- more than 100 chemotherapy chairs
- clinical and operational support services
- double the space for clinical trials
- research laboratories
- 12 radiation vaults
- double the capacity to treat patients with the best technology
- New on-site underground parking
Groundbreaking of the new facility will begin late 2017. Construction is estimated to run until 2022 with a public opening anticipated for 2023.
The CCC will be constructed at the Foothills Medical Centre (FMC) site on the current parking Lot 7.
