- Renovations February 1, 2018A major renovation project is set to begin that will impact all floors in the Edward L. Roach Centre building of Northwood’s Halifax Campus. All shower rooms are being renovated, including upgrades to the plumbing and décor. This work is scheduled to begin Monday, February 5, 2018.The comfort of our residents is important to us and we have developed plans to minimize disruption. Alternate arrangements for bathing will be in place during the renovations such as tub or bed baths. Residents wishing to have a shower will be able to access facilities on other floors.
Residents should expect noise levels to increase during this project. Staff will work with those residents who may be disturbed by the noise. For example, they may be offered to attend programs off the floor during peak periods when construction noise increases.
The first floors to be completed will be the Bays Neighbourhood (7th, 8th and 9th floor) and then construction will continue down through the remaining floors. There may, however, be construction workers on any floor to gain access to the plumbing. The project is expected to be complete in six months with each floor taking approximately three weeks to complete.
If you have questions regarding the project please contact the nursing manager for your Neighbourhood.
Thank you for your patience as we work to improve our facility!
