The British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) School of Health Sciences provides industry leading education for essential in-demand careers in the healthcare field. With over thirty different health science programs offered in a variety of delivery formats, it educates and trains future health care professionals to meet the growing demands of British Columbian families.

A new $78.3 million four-story, 106,660 ff² Health Sciences Centre for Advanced Simulation (HSCAS) was constructed on BCIT’s Burnaby Campus. This new facility replaced existing simulation spaces to replicate the work environments of a variety of different healthcare settings, including hospitals, community clinics, and residential and home care services.

HCR provided Asset Move Planning and Physical Relocation services for the multi-phase project. HCR’s planning work began in the fall of 2021. HCR worked closely with BCIT staff to develop detailed move plans for all contents that were relocating from five various outbuildings on the campus into the new facility. HCR coordinated with all necessary equipment vendors on behalf of BCIT to ensure safe relocation of all equipment. HCR then executed the physical relocations of medical equipment, medical labs and IT equipment over two separate move phases. The first and largest phase was completed over thirteen consecutive days in June of 2022. HCR then returned in mid-August 2022 and completed the second and final phase over five consecutive days.
