PCL Team named Preferred Proponent for New St. Paul’s Hospital & Health Campus

Posted on Posted in Healthcare, Vancouver

The PCL Team has been selected as preferred proponent to design, build, and partially finance the New St. Paul’s Hospital and Health Campus in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The PCL Team includes PCL Westcoast Constructors as the design-builder and equity member, with architects HDR Architecture Associates and Stantec Architecture. Footprint, a member of the Smith + Andersen Group of Companies, is providing sustainability consulting services to the PCL Team.

New St. Paul’s Hospital and Health Campus, which is to be located at 1002 Station Street in the False Creek Flats area of Vancouver, will have capacity for up to 548 beds – 115 more beds than the current Burrard Street location. Once complete, the campus is expected to employ more than 10,000 people. In addition to acute care services, the campus will house medical and research space.


“Through the New St. Paul’s Hospital, the Province of BC is raising the bar for sustainability in healthcare design. Footprint is proud to be part of the PCL Team, working with top design and construction professionals to add true innovation to this project.” – Lyle Scott, Principal (Footprint)


Sustainability and resiliency have been central to the design of the new health campus, which will be connected to the surrounding community through walking and cycling paths as well as easily-accessible transit options. These governing principles have informed the building systems design, including heat recovery systems that will minimize waste, maximize efficiency, and reduce the carbon footprint of the campus. Energy performance for New St. Paul’s Hospital and Health Campus is anticipated to exceed the rezoning requirements outlined in the City of Vancouver’s “Green Buildings Policy for Rezoning” and “Greenest City Action Plan 2020”.

Footprint is proud to be part of the PCL Team for such an important addition to BC healthcare.
