QEII New Generation - Master Plan

Wednesday March 11, 2020

The QEII New Generation is the largest health care project in Nova Scotia history. A critical part of this project is the master plan. It determines what this project will look like, and where services will be delivered. It deals with some of the province’s most specialized health services.

There are seven reports produced by Kasian Architecture, one of Canada’s top architectural and design firms, who is leading the redevelopment of the QEII Health Sciences Centre master plan process.  These reports mark the sequential progress of this massive, complex project.  Each submission involves critical reviews and enhancements by the QEII New Generation team, comprised of staff from Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal, Nova Scotia Health Authority and the Department of Health and Wellness.
