HDR selected to design University of Ottawa Heart Institute expansion
HDR Architecture has been named the lead architect for the Heart Institute Life Support Capital Project, a new building addition to the University of Ottawa Heart Institute. With an estimated $120 million construction budget, the addition will address existing space constraints and help plan for future growth. Slated to begin construction in the fall of 2014, the project will also include the renovation of the existing basement and upgrades to the site.
The University of Ottawa Heart Institute (UOHI) is Canada’s largest cardiovascular health centre, and a bilingual academic health centre whose principal role and mandate is the provision of a complete range of cardiovascular services to over 1.2 million residents in Eastern Ontario, Western Quebec and Nunavut.
