Liège, Belgium

Hospital: 100,000 m² | 1,076,400 ft² | 720 Beds

Group Service Building: 6,000 m² | 64,580 ft²

Centre Hospitalier Chrétien’s new 100,000 m² | 1,076,400 ft² MontLégia Clinic was constructed to consolidate services previously spread between the Clinique Saint Joseph, Clinique de L’espérance and Clinique Saint Vincent facilities into one location. The new MontLégia Clinic houses 720 conventional hospital beds and 120-day beds. The project also saw the construction of a new 6,000 m² | 64,580 ft² Group Services Building to house administrative services serving all CHC sites and activities.

HCR was selected through an RFP process to provide Facility Activation, Move Planning and Move Management Services for the project. Planning for the Moves began in December 2018 and, after numerous changes to the initial move dates, were ultimately scheduled to be completed in March 2020.

During the move, the uprise of the global COVID-19 pandemic added numerous complications requiring major changes to the move plan, which were implemented during the progression of the move. Lockdowns, travel-bans and return-home directives were issued, but the HCR move management team opted to stay and lead the relocation, freeing up much needed bed capacity during a time it was desperately needed.
