Civil Engineering

The new 270-bed hospital is a state-of-the-art health care facility for residents of Kingston and surrounding communities. Services and programs were relocated from the St. Mary’s of the Lake Hospital site and the Mental Health Services site of Providence Care to the new hospital, which offers a comprehensive range of inpatient and outpatient programs, as well as improved learning and research facilities. 


The project incorporated sustainable design and construction features, with the goal of achieving LEED® Silver certification. The new facility incorporates healthy indoor environments, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, and efficient use of energy, water, and other resources.


WalterFedy’s scope of work on this project consisted of civil engineering design of site services for the main hospital facility as well as a service building.  Specific design services included site grading, drainage, sanitary services, traffic circulation, and signage as well as coordination of gas, communication, and hydro utility alignments and profiles on site. Our services also included stormwater analysis for water quantity and quality treatment and site development design, including walkways, parking, landscaping, temporary relocation of existing services, and new services including water, sewer, storm sewer and steam, hydro, and communication utilities. We provided design of the entry road to municipal standards so that it can be assumed by the City in the future.
