Scope and Content
This project series documents the construction of the Etobicoke General Hospital in Etobicoke, Ontario from 1966-1971. The office identified the project number as 6601.
The project consisted of the design and construction of a twelve storey hospital building. The area of the building was 409,000 square feet and included 500 beds, diagnostic and treatment facilities, laboratories, administrative spaces, a cafeteria, and a staff lounge. This project was considered to be the first phase of construction at the time, with a medical office building and educational facilities to be added later on. The building was also designed to accommodate future vertical and horizontal expansion.
John C. Parkin was originally hired for this project while he was working at the firm John B. Parkin Associates. This firm eventually evolved under new ownership, and was referred to as Searle Wilbee Rowland and later, as NORR. John C. Parkin left this firm during the project and continued work for the Etobicoke General Hospital under his new firm Parkin Architects Planners. All three firm names are present within materials for this project.
The project is recorded through reprographic copies of drawings, including a presentation board, dating from 1968-1976. These drawings include as-built drawings, site plans, floor plans, elevations, sections, details, and construction schedules.
Material in this project series has been arranged by material type.
