At the time of construction, the new Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (University of Montreal Health Centre - CHUM) was the biggest project of its kind in North America. It is now one of the crown jewels of Québec’s healthcare system. Following a large-scale public tender, TKNL was tasked with the technological integration of a hundred of its rooms, according to a dozen different models, and with each unit independent from the other.
From start to finish, this venture was rife with logistical challenges: vastly different types of rooms to integrate, delays on site, various regulatory requirements, and multiple clients to satisfy… not to mention the added complexity of working on a project of this magnitude in sync with a building contractor (tight schedules at the loading dock, limited parking spaces, etc.).
Despite all these challenges―and after some 2000 hours of installation―the end result surpassed our own expectations. Let’s call this project our modest contribution to a healthy Québec!
