May 2, 2023: The Cowichan District Hospital Replacement Project team finished the largest concrete pour for the new hospital! With three 52-metre-tall concrete pumps and an average of 19 concrete trucks arriving at site per hour from 5 a.m. until 6:30 p.m., 30 workers unloaded an impressive 2,220 cubic metres of concrete!

This remarkable team even completed the pour five hours ahead of schedule. That's amazing! Thank you to everyone who contributed to this milestone and to the neighbours of North Cowichan for their patience as we completed this important work.


April 2023: Construction noise notice

The new Cowichan District Hospital construction project will see an increase in activity over the next few weeks. This includes a long day concrete pour planned for April 21 between 5 a.m. and midnight. Nearby residents and area road users will notice an increase in trucks and noise.

Council for the Municipality of North Cowichan has directed that staff use their discretion to enforce noise infractions and to allow for construction to proceed outside of the regular construction hours, when necessary, until the project is completed.

Bell McKinnon Road will remain open, but intermittent traffic delays may occur as concrete trucks access the site. Please follow all traffic signage and construction personnel directives.
