    Special Bulletin

    June 30, 2014

    1/2

    Demoliti on and Excavati on Demoliti on has begun on the connectors between SHY A wing and the Children’s and Women’s main building, and the SHY E to SHY L wing bridge connector. The MERU building will follow, with demoliti on beginning in early July. Throughout July, Affi nity will separate A wing from B wing. Every eff ort will be made to minimize noise and vibrati on associated with this work.

    The work is being completed by specialist contractors to meet and exceed WorkSafe BC protocols and procedures. Crews will use jack hammers, saws, cranes and excavators. It will be noisy as they remove glass and steel from the buildings as well as cut into the concrete walls to make the separati on. All materials will be trucked off site for recycling and/ or proper disposal. As the secti ons are removed, the contractor will construct a temporary exterior wall to protect the building. Working hours will be from approximately 07:30-17:00.

    Excavati on is beginning on a porti on of the parking lot east of the ACB to construct a new fi re

    department access road. In order to access the northeast parking lot, staff and visitors now need to walk around the north end of the Constructi on Zone, as the road in front of the ACB and L wing is closed.

    The parking ti cket dispensers near the northeast parking lot (the “back 40”) will soon be moved as the current area is incorporated into the constructi on zone. The ti cket dispensers will be relocated near the pedestrian walkway connecti ng the northeast parking lot to the ring road.

    Shaughnessy L Wing Exterior Demoliti on Affi nity has begun superfi cial exterior demoliti on work on Shaughnessy L wing, underneath the white ‘shrink wrap’. This will conti nue unti l the end of July and involves pressure washing and the removal of paint from L wing’s exterior. This work will be fully contained and is being completed by specialist contractors to meet and exceed WorkSafe BC protocols and procedures.

    Affi nity’s specialist contractors use foam insulati on to buff er the noise, but clinical areas, especially in the Ambulatory Care Building will hear some noise.

    Noise and Vibrati on Vibrati on and sound monitors are in place around the perimeter of the constructi on zone. Alarms will noti fy us immediately if levels exceed the acceptable range and constructi on work will be adjusted.

    As with Phase 1 constructi on acti viti es, stop work protocols are also in place. However please keep in mind that this is an acti ve constructi on site, and noise is a part of the process.
