Project Overview

The Mackenzie Vaughan hospital is an 11-story, 1,200,000 square foot hospital located on a 36-acre greenfield campus. The hospital will be the first “smart” hospital in Canada with an integrated technology allowing medical devices to ‘speak’ to one another, facilitating a more streamlined healthcare service.

The design for the hospital incorporates many sustainable measures including low overall energy use, water conservation, green roofs, construction waste diversion, and the use of Brampton Brick with CarbonCure masonry units. The hospital is seeking LEED-silver certification and is scheduled for completion in 2020.

Brampton Brick used 556,030 units of concrete masonry made with CarbonCure for the completion of this project. The amount of CO₂ sequestered in this project totals 12,455 lbs. CO₂, which is equivalent to the amount of CO₂ sequestered in 146 tree seedlings grown for 10 years.
