The Biggest Hospital in North America to Feature a Green Roof with Medicinal Herbs

The Biggest Hospital in North America to Feature a Green Roof with Medicinal Herbs

High tech features, earthiness, and historic architecture are seamlessly intertwined in every fold of this 3 million square foot project . An historic church was preserved on the site and has been repurposed to form a cathedral-like entryway into the hospital at street level. A Metro stop (Montreal’s subway system) will whisk visitors into the building from underground, where they can access a system of elevators, escalators, and tunnels to get them to their destinations quickly and smoothly. Behind its walls, CHUM will feature a state-of-the-art WIFI robotics system that delivers food, medicine and clothing, while removing bio-waste, trash and recyclables.
