HUMBER HOSPITAL

Humber River Hospital’s Keele site is a prime example of PDI’s commitment to recycling. The Northwestern Region Hospital was built in 1950 to serve the growing Toronto community. When hospital services for York Region were amalgamated in the 1990s, this site, now part of Humber River Hospital, was scheduled for closure and residential development.

The existing structures contained significant amounts of asbestos, so before structural demolition could commence, the entire hospital had to be decommissioned and abated, followed by an interior stripping phase that included the removal of interior walls and electrical and mechanical elements.

PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS

This project was valued at  $3.8 Million

PDI’s recycling program hospital generated 3,550 metric tons of steel, 38,000 metric tons of crushed concrete, 4,267 metric tons of brick recycled with conservation, 323 metric tons of asphalt, 337 metric tons of soil remediation over 1300 fluorescent tubes, and 250 radioactive smoke detectors

This project commenced in April 2016
