The Applied Health Institute at Niagara College is a two-storey steel frame building with an area of approximately 90,000 square feet that accommodates the college’s health studies programs, including paramedic, nursing and dental programs. Due to federal funding for the project from the Knowledge Infrastructure Program, the facility was constructed on a rigorous schedule with mandatory completion dates. Aquicon Construction successfully met all project dates and delivered the project under the original budget. Sequential tendering allowed for commencement with the demolition and foundations as the construction documents were being completed. Due to the extensive cost savings passed down to the College, further site and building improvements were implemented at the request of Niagara College.

“Aquicon provided valuable experience to establish an accurate construction budget and schedule. The company was a team player for both projects and treated all stakeholders professionally.”

Steve Done, Senior Associate, aTRM Architects

The state-of-the-art facilities at the Applied Health Institute were built to include teaching labs, simulation hospital environments, classrooms, offices, boardrooms, and a 350 seat tiered lecture theatre. The school’s teaching labs were built to hospital specification, and include medical gas pressure distribution systems and patient monitoring and alarm systems.
