It’s just before 4 p.m. on a late-February afternoon at an expansive and very muddy construction site in Terrace, B.C., where a new state-of-the-art Mills Memorial Hospital is being built. Two lofty yellow tower cranes hover over the worksite. Below, a cement truck is delivering concrete.
In January, waterproofing and backfilling of the below-ground floor was completed. Most of the ground level of the massive concrete structure, pad footings, columns and walls are complete. To date, 10,000 square metres of slabs have been installed and 8,500 square metres of concrete has been poured.
Work on the $623-million project began in summer 2021 and the targeted completion date is September 2024. The new hospital is replacing an existing one on the same site.
