When the COVID-19 pandemic struck in early 2020, the government of Quebec declared a state of emergency, which included measures to prevent and overcome the pandemic. As part of their response to the pandemic, the Hôpital Maisonneuve- Rosemont in Montreal engaged WSP to have a building expansion constructed to accommodate the increased patient load caused by COVID-19. Utilizing modular construction methods, the forward-looking project team designed the complex so that it could also be used to serve oncology patients after the pandemic. The jury saw this project as an example of striving to achieve excellence while also working under extraordinary circumstances. They were impressed with the team’s forward thinking in considering the longer term, permanent benefits of the complex for the hospital.
