Case Study: The Atikokan General Hospital project, with a completion date of July 2017, is a two-year stipulated price $11.3 million contract for an addition to the hospital as well as a renovation. The construction project consisted of four phases: Phase 1, the addition of the hospital and Phases 2-4, the renovation of existing space.
Contract Administrator/Prime Consultant
The key challenge of this project was its geographically diverse project team. How geographically diverse? The office of the General Contractor, Manshield Construction Inc., is in Thunderbay and 2,000 km away from the hospital’s location. The Owner, Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care of Ontario, is located 1,700 km away from Kasian’s Toronto office. Having an “electronic system is a god send with time saved” stated Project Manager Michael Paquette.
Without Onware’s collaborative online document management software system, the construction project would have had to rely on a courier to deliver documents. With such a geographically diverse team, it would take seven working days for the courier delivery. Paquette expressed, a “single system that is current all the time is key” for construction contract administration, with all people accessing and gaining answers to their questions, without a “dependency on one person or system”.
- A total of 6,200 sq.ft. was renovated, and 8,900 sq. ft. was added to make room for four acute beds and four long-term beds
- Manshield Construction completed one section at a time and turned it over to the hospital, who would then transfer patients and services around and turn over the next area of renovation to Manshield
