Just over a year after construction started, the Gene Zwozdesky Centre at Norwood in Edmonton is taking shape.
About 160 construction workers are currently on site, working extended hours to keep this important and critical project on schedule and on budget.
With work progressing quickly and completion slated for early 2024, the project is expected to create 1,600 construction-related jobs.
“It is exciting to see the Gene Zwozdesky Centre take shape. Seniors and complex care residents in and around Edmonton are one step closer to increased access to the quality continuing care they need,” said Alberta Minister of Health Tyler Shandro.
Key markers of project progress to date include the relocation of underground 72kV transmission line, completion of excavation, and buildout of the foundation and concrete structure.
“I am constantly amazed and impressed by the expertise and commitment of our construction industry workers. Despite dealing with challenges such as the weather and the COVID-19 pandemic, they reflect the determination of Albertans to get the job done and they are an integral part in fuelling the restart of our economy,” said Prasad Panda, Minister of Infrastructure.
