Working as an advisor to the Vancouver Island Health Authority for this significant design/build project, Attentus focused on the holistic integration of two new state-of the-art hospitals into the existing communities and landscapes. Attentus was involved in three capacities as follows:
- As designers and public facilitators, Attentus helped bring a successful land negotiation to fruition.
- As part of the Owner’s Technical Review Team, Attentus provided the landscape design specifications and compliance review during construction for the two hospitals. This included the overall site treatments, the design of various specialized therapeutic gardens, and the long-term maintenance requirements for the facilities. The attention to detail catered to all users of the spaces.
- As campus landscape designers, Attentus developed cohesive plans to link several public agency facilities adjacent to the hospital sites.
