■ ■ ■ Health-care design www.raic.org/2007 phase began in 2002 and it soon became obvious the professionals « weren’t getting it, » Kasian enlisted the help of four teams of chronically ill children and young people – between the ages of 8 and 22 – who had spent time at the old hospital. Everyone was given a sheet of paper with the outline of the building elevations, and each one of the young participants contributed their own design ideas – many of which figure in the final result. Explains Gardner : « We asked them about their experiences in going to a hospital and were expecting them to tellus about pain and anguish. Instead, we heard comments like, ‘Ah man, it’s so dark and depressing and boring.’ » « The kids gave us a lot of cues about variety, colour and scale. » They drew little people with big windows, and used a lot of colour – bright yellows and deep blues. And in the completed hospital, that’s what they got – on the inside and the outside. When children in the cancer unit are too ill to venture out, a sunroom provides them with a It also covers the most fashionable buildings.

Alberta’s new children’s hospital – which was completed in less than three years – also satisfies Gardner’s goal to create a flexible and nimble design. The hospital site has been master-planned to enable future expansion to occur laterally and not vertically, and thus, avoid disruptions or shutdowns of existing areas during construction. The latest information systems and technology have been incorporated into the hospital building to accommodate new wireless and fibre-optic technologies. (Stretched out, the 19 kilometres of fibre-optic cables for telephones and computers could reach the summit of Mount Everest and back down ; the 2,100 km of wire required amounts double the distance between Calgary and Vancouver.) Each of the pediatric intensive care and oncology patient rooms has its own air supply. To Health-care design prevent the build-up of dangerous bacteria, such as legionella, not a single pipe is at a 90-degree angle. In addition, pre-manufactured headwalls to house medical gases, electrical outlets and nurse-call systems will facilitate future retrofits and changes to occur without the need to demolish walls or shut down patient rooms. Overall, the new Alberta Children’s Hospital is more than 60 per cent larger than the previous facility, and its emergency department is designed to serve 60,000 patient visits annually compared to the 25,000 visits-peryear its predecessor was built to handle. However, the most distinguishing aspect of the new Alberta Children’s Hospital – the first freestanding pediatric facility built in Canada in 20 years and the only one between the Alberta-British Columbia border and Winnipeg – is that its youth friendly look and function reflects the needs and desires of its end users.
