Construction

Building the Glen site

The Glen site is being designed, built, financed and maintained through a public-private partnership (PPP). Our partner, Groupe immobilier santé McGill (GISM), is hard at work to complete the health complex by the end of 2014.

Construction is progressing quickly: once a barren field, the complex now changes every day and is rapidly being transformed into what will be our next centre for healthcare excellence. 

Reducing the construction impact in the area

In a concerted effort to reduce the dirt and dust on neighbouring streets, the MUHC’s private partner GISM, the Quebec Transport Ministry and the City of Montreal put several mitigation measures in place that have had positive effects: 

  • Additional conventional street sweepers on neighbouring streets
  • Additional small street sweeper pulled by a van to clean hard-to-reach areas in corners and to do a finishing job
  • Tanker trucks to wash city streets
  • Continuous high pressure washing (Karcher) of the road at the exit of the Glen Site
  • Periodic washing of the truck wheel (a ramp installed to clean truck wheels before exiting the site)
  • A high-pressure hose operator manually cleans truck wheels before they exit the site
  • The city street network being cleaned was expanded to include streets reaching St Jacques and Pullman
  • GISM laid gravel on site roads to reduce the amount of mud on site.

Construction around the site

The City of Montreal and Ministry of Transport are carrying out major road and infrastructure work in preparation for the Glen site.

The MUHC is also working closely with the Ministry of Transport to coordinate the road work with the construction of the Turcot interchange.
