The McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) is one of the world’s foremost academic health centres. Built on the tradition of the medical leadership of its founding hospitals, the MUHC provides exceptional multidisciplinary patient-centric care.

One of the most innovative academic health centers in North America, the MUHC's Glen site will transform patient care and provide a state-of-the-art teaching environment for the next generation of health professionals. Located between NDG and Westmount, this new MUHC building is one of North America's most innovative academic health centers. It includes six establishments in one:
- Montreal Children's Hospital
- Royal Victoria Hospital
- Montreal’s chest Institute
- Cedres Cancer Center
- The Research Institute of the McGill University Health Center
- McGill Academic Eye Health Center

Challenges

The construction of this large hospital project with several pavilions needed to meet accelerated construction and tight budget constraints. Nearly one hundred air-handling systems ranging from 5,000 to 40,000 cfm were designed for this major project.

Solutions 

Ingenia's sales team worked with the engineers and contractors to design and produce high-performance ventilation systems with increased productivity. In order to maintain optimal thermal performances, the casings were manufactured with  a 3’’ thick no-through metal construction and injected with polyurethane. For added durability, the exterior surfaces of the unit were covered with an oven-baked powder paint and the internal surfaces were coated with an antimicrobial powder paint to provide improved air quality.
