The province continues to move forward with the largest health-care infrastructure project in Nova Scotia’s history.
A tender to design and build a parkade across from the Halifax Infirmary on Summer Street was awarded to Lindsay Construction Limited, today, July 2, as part of the QEII New Generation project’s parking strategy. The parkade, with about 500 spaces, will be located north of the Museum of Natural History on provincially owned land.
The existing parkade on Robie Street will be taken down to allow for the construction of an expanded inpatient centre and operating rooms. The replacement parkade is necessary before construction starts on the hospital site to provide parking for patients, visitors and staff as spaces will be lost during construction when the existing parkade comes down.
A second larger parkade of about 1,000 spaces will be built at the former CBC Building site, part of the Halifax Infirmary’s design-build-finance and maintain project.
