Construction & Temporary Disruptions

To assist you with your visit please note the following planned disruptions that are currently taking place throughout our various hospital sites. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Parkwood Instiute - Main - Expansion Joint and Flooring Replacement at Parkwood Main Building Zone C, levels 3, 4 and 5

Start Date:2020-01-13
End Date:2020-03-31
Time:08:00am - 05:00pm
Reason for Disruption:To enhance safety, the care and work environment at Parkwood Institute Main Building, work will be undertaken to replace the flooring in Zone C, levels 3, 4, 5. This project will involve removal of ceramic tiles, replacement of expansion joints, and laying of environmentally-friendly linoleum floor covering, called Marmoleum. The new flooring will make spaces quieter, smoother for the use of carts and wheelchairs, and reduce tripping hazards. This project will occur in phases starting on level 5 and working down to level 3. The work will begin on Monday. Jan. 13 and will be completed by March 31. The following is a tentative timeline: • Jan. 13 to mid-February – flooring removal and prep for new flooring. • Mid-February to early March – Removal and replacement of or expansion joints • Early March to March 31 – new flooring installation Noise Phase 1 of the project involves the removal of the existing floor, which will result in loud noise at times. This phase of the work will be the noisiest as heavy duty equipment is required to lift and remove the ceramic tiles and expansion joints. All efforts possible will be made to limit noise and when it occurs. Work that generates loud noises will be scheduled for Monday to Friday from 8 am to 5 pm. This schedule may be adjusted outside of these hours and days if necessary to accommodate patient and staff needs Access to floors and units: Work areas on each level will be sectioned off and enclosed with heavy plastic sheeting during the floor removal phase. The work will be contained within these barriers, which will have proper air filtration for infection control. All traffic will be redirected around the barriers. Appropriate signage will be in place throughout the project to redirect staff, patients and visitors. Elevator access: Elevator access will be intermittently disrupted depending on where the contractor is working. However, there will always be access to each level via an elevator. If a bank of elevators is down, signage will be posted to re-direct people to the closest elevator. Your care and services: There will be no interruption on the units to patient care and services. Access to an area, however, may be temporarily re-routed while construction is underway. We understand the inconvenience and upset this work may cause at times to our patients and families. Your comfort is important to us. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to a staff member with any difficulties at any time during the construction period. Staff will pass on your concerns to Facilities Management.
Alternate Facilities/Services:Where people need to be re - directed there will be signs and maps to indicate how to get to your destination.
