Healthcare infrastructure projects are booming in British Columbia and across Western Canada. It’s an exciting time to be part of this era of transformation and innovation, but it’s not without its challenges.

In recent years supply chain disruptions and material price escalation put project timelines and budgets in jeopardy. As project teams continue to adapt from planning through to procurement, they are faced with yet another challenge that also stems, in part, from the pandemic. The critical shortage of doctors, nurses, and healthcare workers. The impact is being felt across the country making it an important time to examine how the built environment along with new tools and technologies can optimize human resources.
