Fort St. John Hospital wins two Gold Awards of Excellence for construction

Flynn Canada also won the Chairman’s Trade award for the project. 

The $237 million project was chosen over other the two other Silver Award of Excellence recipients: Graham Construction and Engineering, a J.V., and ITC Construction Group. 

The new hospital opened on June 21, 2012, after construction of the two-story hospital with 55 acute-care beds and a residential care facility with 124 beds began in September 2009. Acciona boasts that it was a challenging project to complete on time, due to its remote, northern location, and finding qualified workers. 

B.C. Hydro’s G.M. Shrum Generating Station Fire Protection Upgrade Project also received a Silver Mechanical Contractor over $3 million award, but was beat out for the gold award by the UBC Earth Systems Building.
