This new P3 facility accommodates 120 long-term care beds, 15 palliative care beds, and 10 rehabilitative care beds. It is immediately adjacent to the Corner Brook Acute Care Hospital, which is currently under construction by Marco.
This building uses geothermal heating and cooling systems. While a more costly solution than a standard electric heating design, a geothermal solution provides greater value via long term energy savings as well as indirect sustainability benefits. The use of geothermal also allows for optimization of the energy performance of the building, thereby capitalizing on the LEED energy points available for this feature. The project has achieved LEED Silver certification.
Marco constructed this design-build-finance-maintain (DBFM) project as a member of Corner Brook Care Partnership. Other members of the team include:
– Developer / Equity Provider / Asset Manager: Plenary Group
– Architect: Montgomery Sisam Architects
– Service Provider: G.J. Cahill
