Edmonton Continuing Care Centre Taking Shape
May 26, 2020
Construction at the Gene Zwozdesky Centre at Norwood is progressing, is on schedule and starting to take shape. About 160 construction workers are currently on site, working extended hours to keep this important and critical project on schedule and on budget, with completion slated for early 2024.
Key markers of project progress to date include the relocation of underground 72kV transmission line, completion of excavation, and buildout of the foundation and concrete structure.
“It is exciting to see the Gene Zwozdesky Centre take shape. Seniors and complex care residents in and around Edmonton are one step closer to increased access to the quality continuing care they need."Tyler Shandro, Alberta Minister of Health
By the end of the year, the concrete structure will be up and the building envelope will be sealed. The focus will then shift to the building’s interior. Construction activity will concentrate on the installation of electrical and mechanical systems, and the installation of ceilings, floors, furnishings and partitions.
