What does it take to design and deliver North America’s largest healthcare project?
I recently wrote an article for ARCHITECT magazine on the University of Montreal Health Centre (or CHUM for short). CHUM is a 3.5 million square foot mega-hospital under construction in Montreal, Canada. Designed by CannonDesign and NEUF Architect(e)s, CHUM is currently the largest healthcare project under construction in North America.
Executing this massive project—one of the largest ever to be modeled in Autodesk Revit—required CannonDesign to redefine its approach to BIM, project workflow and delivery, and staffing. Many of the protocols developed for CHUM have since been implemented elsewhere in the firm.
In the article, I write about the seven lessons CannonDesign learned from the project, starting from day one. Click the link below to read the article.
