Contract awarded for Paton Hospital Project

Lloyd Matthews, Minister of Works, Services and Transportation, and Sandra Kelly, MHA - Gander, today announced that a $1,015,000 contract has been awarded to Granco Construction Ltd. of Gander for Phase 2, Contract 6C, of the James Paton Memorial Hospital project in Gander.

The contract covers the replacement of brick work, windows androofing of the original hospital structure.

Kelly said that the work will commence immediately and is scheduled for completion by October of this year. She added that the work is a portion of government's $5 million allocation to the Paton Hospital redevelopment project during the current fiscal year.

The 1998-99 budget allocation also enables tenders to be called for building systems infrastructure for the new extension. This major phase will feature the installation of key mechanical components such as heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems along with the installation of electrical services running from the hospital's existing utility plant.

Two tenders are being planned for this phase, with the electrical component to be called in September and the tender for mechanical

work to be called in October. Kelly noted that the calling of tenders for this phase is slightly behind schedule due to delays in the preparation of detailed engineering plans and specifications.
