QEII Redevelopment, Halifax Infirmary Renovations Moving Forward

The province continues to move forward with the QEII redevelopment project with plans to increase the number of operating rooms and relocate two interventional suites at the Halifax Infirmary site of the QEII Health Sciences Centre.

A request for proposals for consultant design services was issued today, Dec. 12.

The consultant will provide design for renovations to the third floor of the Halifax Infirmary site to allow the relocation of two interventional suites from the fifth floor. The suites provide health-care services such as treatment for stroke patients. These changes will enhance patient care and improve efficiency.

The fifth-floor space will be renovated to include two new operating rooms. One of the rooms will be a hybrid that will allow the use of advanced diagnostic imaging equipment during the most complex procedures. The renovations are expected to be completed in the fall of 2020.

The successful bidder will work with Kasian Architecture, who was recently awarded the QEII master planning and programming contract.

The deadline for submissions is Jan. 4. Details of the request for proposals are available at

The QEII redevelopment project includes the expansion of the QEII Health Sciences Centre, along with projects at Dartmouth General Hospital, Hants Community Hospital and other sites that will support the eventual closure of the Centennial and Victoria buildings in Halifax.
