Detailed case studies of: 1) the BC Cancer Agency Centre for the North and 2) the Fort St. John Hospital and Residential Care Project, which were recipients of the 2012 CCPPP National Gold Award for Infrastructure and Silver Award for Infrastructure.

The $72.2 million BC Cancer Centre for the North in Prince George gives the communities of northern British Columbia closer access to cancer treatment and diagnostic services. The 54,000-square-metre facility has received LEED Gold certification and features extensive use of B.C. wood, a "living" roof, healing garden and spiritual care room. Plenary Health's design includes an underground parking lot, a feature that exceeded the public partners' specifications and provides real value to the patients, staff and visitors using the facility.

The new 55-bed hospital and 124-bed seniors' residential care facility that comprise Fort St. John's new Hospital and Residential Care Project, achieved through a partnership between ISL Health General Partnership and the Northern Health Authority, have been built to serve Northern B.C.'s growing Peace River community. The hospital, which replaces an older, smaller, facility, features enhanced and new medical services, a new birthing centre, and spiritual rooms. A two-storey link allows its services to be shared with the home-like wooden residential care facility. Both buildings have been given LEED Gold certification.

This 28-page combined case study provides details on the elements that made these projects the 2012 Infrastructure Award Winners. Information on the project includes: quick facts, procurement process, structure of the agreement, financial arrangements, risk allocation, performance monitoring, benefits, communications, labour, innovative features, lessons learned, testimonials and partner contacts.
