IBI Group led the building architecture and master planning efforts of this ambitious project to regroup five McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) institutions at Glen Campus: the Montreal Children’s Hospital, the Royal Victoria Hospital, the Cancer Centre, the Research Institute, and the Montreal Chest Institute.

As part of the McGill Health Infrastructure Group (MHIG) consortium that was awarded the Public-Private Partnership (P3) contract to design, construct, finance and maintain the new Glen Campus of MUHC, IBI Group was tasked with articulating a design that united the campus and represented the four integral elements of MUHC’s core mission: clinical practice, education, research, and technology assessment. 

The new two-million square ft, 43-acre campus will put patients and families first, providing 500 single-patient rooms in a state-of-the-art hospital colocated alongside research and academic facilities. 

The complex’s design was conceived using sustainable development principles, including energy recovery and a building orientation that takes advantage of prevailing winds to protect healing gardens and optimize mechanical system efficiency. IBI Group is also leading the Interior Design Master Plan, which includes Public Spaces, Wayfinding, Heritage, Donor Recognition, Artwork Program, Furniture, and standards for administrative workspaces.

Ease of navigation, patient comfort, and the coming together of five unique hospitals within a larger mission of care prevail in the design, and promise to continue the rich legacy of McGill University’s Health Centre.

Although Marsha Bousquet has 26 years of experience related to urban infrastructure development from planning through implementation, since 2009, Marsha?s focus has been entirely dedicated to AFP/P3-type projects. Her role extends from the commercial management of P3 projects, design team management, bid management during RFQ/RFP stage, and instilling best practices in delivery. Prior to that, she undertook master planning and entitlements for major redevelopment projects in Canada and the United States that have reshaped development patterns to take advantage of public transit, contributing to more sustainable city building.

Her professional experience in planning major infill, redevelopment projects involving the transformation of industrial lands to mixed-use, Transit Oriented Developments; master site planning for light rail and commuter rail transit stations; transportation planning studies for urban transit; and securing entitlements related to multi-tower high rise residential and mixed-use projects gives her a broad and unique perspective into design team work on AFP/P3 projects.
