Unique Installation Challenge Strategy
Renovation in Existing Operation Children's Hospital by Maxwell Floors Ltd. Mr. Ozzy Rodrigues., Sales & Project Manager.
Renovation of the Sunny Hill Health Centre began in 2018, and the building was still occupied and caring for patients throughout that time. The project was well underway when the COVID-19 pandemic interrupted progress. Crews had to remain socially distanced throughout the construction site. This was a particular challenge for flooring installers installing various floor types; heterogeneous & homogeneous sheet vinyl products with welded seams, and various heterogeneous sheet vinyl wall covering with heat welded seams. Extra Health & Safety Stations for hand washing, tool washing stations were installed throughout the building, and traffic patterns were established to ensure separate entrance and exit points. The GC and Maxwell handled all these challenges very well, and the project was not delayed. The Sunny Hill Health Centre opened to patients on time in September 2020, offering state-of-the-art medical care in a clean, comfortable new environment.
