TORONTO — PCL Constructors Canada Inc. (Toronto) has achieved substantial completion on the Milton District Hospital (MDH) expansion project.
There were more than 600 workers onsite daily, working on a tight, 21-month design-build schedule, which also took place on an active hospital site, explains a release. More than 1.2 million hours were worked without a lost time injury (LTI).
"Accomplishing an excess of 1.2 million hours worked without an LTI is a tremendous achievement and I want to thank each and every person who stepped foot on this construction site for making it their personal responsibility to work safely," said PCL Toronto district manager Kelly Wallace in a statement.
PCL's role on the project was design-builder as part of the Plenary Health team.
