Royal Inland Hospital Kamloops, British Columbia

Farrow developed a comprehensive Master Plan of 855,730 sf for this complex and difficult site. The plan was informed by a facility assessment review, a master program and parking and traffic demand study.

Programming resulted in identifying several priority programs that required new and expanded space that reflected the latest planning and infection control standards. Given facility limitations associated with obsolete infrastructure, the master plan developed a phased construction approach that responds to first-phase priorities, including new inpatient beds, a surgical suite and additional on-site parking.

The unanimously approved Master Plan was a result of a collaborative 3D model charrette methodology that engages users whereby the final solution is a product of “co-creation” as opposed to the more traditional approach of "buy-in."
