Post-Move: Space Decanting and Equipment Decommissioning at the Milton District Hospital

Decommissioning | General | Healthcare Relocation

Toronto ON – Milton ON, Canada

In Dec 2017, The Readiness Group completed the Space Decanting and Equipment Decommissioning project at the Milton District Hospital (MDH). As a needed “post-move” component of the Tower Expansion project, The Readiness Group decommissioned 9 departments and many smaller program groups. This work involved the removal of remaining items in departments that vacated their legacy space, liquidating the value of high-demand surplus assets, repurposing surplus equipment for continued use, removal of larger built-in apparatus and the relocation of equipment within MDH departments and across to other hospitals in the Halton Healthcare network. Working with various contractors, The Readiness Group also identified “make-safe” repairs and space remediation needs created from vacating departments.

Often overlooked, space expansion capital development projects within hospitals have post-move requirements. Halton Healthcare’s redevelopment team identified this need early in their redevelopment planning and appreciated the various opportunities a structured space decanting effort will create.
