McGill University Health Centre

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.
