Scope and Content

This project series documents the design and construction of the Royal Ottawa Regional Rehabilitation Centre in Ottawa, Ontario from 1974-1981. The office identified the project number as 7432.

The Ottawa Heath Sciences Complex, a vast hospital network encompassing institutions across the city, hired Parkin Architects Planners in 1971 to design and construct University of Ottawa buildings within the network. These campus buildings were located in the Alta Vista neighbourhood and referred to as the Health Sciences Centre. This project consists of one building in that complex, the Royal Ottawa Regional Rehabilitation Centre. The distinction between these names should be noted when viewing the materials. The two-storey rehabilitation centre was constructed directly beside the Ottawa Health Sciences Building, another hospital in the network built by Parkin (see project series AP018.S1.1974.PR01 in this fonds). The proposal conceived a 145,000 square foot hospital with 77 in-patient beds. The design included space for patient accommodation, teaching, research, administrative activities, patient care and treatment, and a concession area. Patients at the hospital would range from those with severe brain injuries, to amputees, to those with rheumatic diseases. The building was carefully designed to accommodate the specialized needs of the patients. The hospital design also included a swimming pool, sports areas, and spaces for other leisure activities thought to aid in the rehabilitation process.

The project is recorded through construction photographs, drawings, and textual materials dating from 1971-1983. The textual records include correspondence, specifications, schedules, contract data, conference reports and minutes, inspection reports, predesign notes, consultancy records, financial documents, change orders, supplementary instructions, research, and deficiency lists. The majority of these textual records deal with the hospital's construction, rather than design. Most drawings are reprographic copies of detail drawings and can be found within the textual records. Box AP018.S1.1974.PR25.002 contains an index to the textual records, which was created by the office.
