The Summit at Quadra Village is a 320-unit complex residential and dementia care facility where residents will receive 24-hour care and support. The Summit will replace the aging Oak Bay Lodge (243 residents) and Mt. Tolmie Hospital (77 residents) facilities, two buildings no longer suitable for residential care.
The Summit will be a state-of-the-art residential and dementia care facility that will last for generations.
The Capital Region Hospital District (CRHD) has designed and is building the Summit on behalf of Island Health. The land and future building will be owned by the CRHD and Island Health will provide the residential care services upon completion of the project, which is anticipated near the end of 2019.
On May 30, the Capital Regional Hospital District received a Financial Innovation award for the Summit at Quadra Village. Presented by the Government Finance Officers Association of BC, this award recognizes the originality and creativity of the project, its innovative financing model and our partnership with Island Health, as future operators of the facility.
- In just a few months, we have seen the Summit rise above basement level. Progress is most visible in the NW Quadrant where the pouring of the concrete structure, exterior steel stud framing and installation of the roof slab is now complete. The exterior walls have been framed and sheathed with drywall. Preparations for window installation will be completed soon with the continued installation of mechanical, plumbing and electrical infrastructure.
- The SW Quadrant will rise to meet the NW Quadrant this summer with preparations for concrete columns and floor slabs now complete. Plumbing and electrical rough-in is ongoing, with steel stud exterior wall framing starting in June.
- With the tendering and award of the civil and landscaping contracts in recent weeks, approximately 98% of the construction budget has now been committed. The Summit remains on budget and site operations are on schedule.
- A mock-up of a resident room has been constructed to review function configuration, equipment placement and aesthetic finishes. The mock-up was well received by Island Health and resident family advisors.
Work on site will occur between the hours of 7am - 7pm, except Sundays and holidays, with the occasional (once every few weeks) large concrete pour extending into the evening with the City's permission. The Capital Regional Hospital District thanks the neighbourhood for its patience during construction.
