On-Site: PCL completes two new CAMH buildings, wrapping $685M phase of redevelopment
The new seven- and eight-storey buildings are situated on the CAMH campus on Queen Street West
Two new buildings at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) have opened their doors after three years of work.
PCL Construction, the design-builder for the project, said Nov. 25 it had wrapped up construction on the new facilities, which are part of $685 million redevelopment on the west end of downtown Toronto.
The new Crisis & Critical Care Building and the McCain Complex Care & Recovery Building cover a combined 600,000 sq. ft. and include 235 in-patient beds. A new emergency department — twice the size of the previous one on CAMH’s nearby College Street campus — along with inpatient mental illness units, telemedicine outreach services and a “Therapeutic Neighbourhood” are among the spaces included in the new facilities.
