Citizen Care Health Solutions™, in partnership with PCL and Stantec, developed a design build solution to investigate, supply and install Citizen Care Patient Care Visiting Pods to allow residents to safely visit with family members at Shared Health Manitoba facilities. In total, 107 purpose-built Citizen Care Patient Care Visiting Pods were delivered and installed at 79 locations across the province in less than three months from award.
COVID-19 challenged Shared Health Manitoba to explore a permanent solution that would allow residents at continuing or long-term care facilities to see their families while protecting front line care workers and other residents once winter weather arrived and outdoor visits were no longer possible.
The project was divided into three overlapping phases, beginning with site investigations to allow for a code compliance. Fabrication and installation were followed by commissioning and site-specific finishing of systems and details.
What are the numbers?
months to Completion
Shared Health Manitoba issued an EOI to seek potential candidates who could design, fabricate and supply shelters at 79 continuing care facilities. The EOI outlined that site-specific designs would be required for foundations, layouts, permitting, and installation.
The program was fast-tracked by Shared Health Manitoba as the EOI process was completed in June with the RFP stage completed in August. Capacity for scope growth and schedule demand were key evaluation considerations that resulted in PCL being the successful proponent. The project was awarded in late August and fabrication and site investigations commenced immediately.
Four separate teams investigated one site each per day to obtain the necessary information to feed the design and fabrication process. The teams completed a checklist of questions and details to prepare for installation. A standardized foundation design was implemented to streamline the installation process.
