Jim Pattison Outpatient Care & Surgery Centre, Surrey BC

This ground-breaking healthcare facility, implemented as a P3 project and built to LEED Gold standard, incorporates a variety of exterior spaces including a therapeutic garden area, a garden plaza that extends summer use of the facility’s cafe and drought-tolerant planting that is maintained with the help of captured rainwater.  Significant heritage trees were carefully retained and a feature avenue of trees representing all Canadian provinces was added.  A large area of surface parking was integrated into the site with carefully-handled soft landscape mitigation of the substantial grade changes to screen parked vehicles, allow for efficient pedestrian access routes and still meet CPTED requirements for the site.
