Workshop 4

Developing the architectural integration scenario

January 24, 25 and February 3, 2016


Participants evaluated five different layout scenarios. Using an evaluation grid that integrated the clinical and functional components, they identified the strengths and weaknesses of each scenario. Based on this evaluation, two new and improved working scenarios were formulated.


It was important to be aware of the constraints and possibilities of the site and the Lachine Hospital building, while respecting the expectations of the hospital staff and the requirements of the Société québécoise des infrastructures (SQI) and the Minister of Health and Social Services (MHSS).



Scenario "A" received the highest evaluation grade and became the reference for the next workshop.
