Design contract awarded for Halifax Infirmary renovations

The provincial government says one of Canada's leading architectural firms has been awarded the contract to design state-of-the-art operating rooms and interventional suites at the Halifax Infirmary.

Architecture49 will do the design for renovations to the third floor of the Halifax Infirmary, allowing two interventional suites to be moved from the fifth floor.

The fifth-floor space will then be renovated to include two new operating rooms.

The renovations are expected to be completed in the fall of 2020.
