Parkin and G architects are collaborating in joint venture with PCL Constructors Canada Inc. in the rapid construction of a 320-bed facility in Ajax, for Lakeridge Health. The project is part of the provincial accelerated build pilot program, led by Infrastructure Ontario, which aims to have the home planning, designed, constructed, and available for senior in the community by late 2021. A 9-station community dialysis clinic and a parking garage have also been proposed as part of the project.
The new building will increase capacity within Ontario’s long-term care system and provides a modern, comfortable, and safe place for seniors in the community to call home. Lakeridge Health’s new home will exceed the current standards for long-term care design and includes a number of lessons learned from the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. The resident-centred design provides for increased ) performance, while promoting increased independence, dignity, and privacy for residents.
Parkin and G architects are excited to be a part of the PCL Contractors Canada Inc. team and look forward to delivering a successful project.
