Contract Awarded to Build New Mental Health Unit in Labrador
A contract valued at $5.1 million has been awarded to Moss Development Corp. to build a new six-bed mental health unit at the Labrador Health Centre in Happy Valley-Goose Bay.
Construction will start in spring 2021 and the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure anticipates construction being completed in 2022.
The new, single-story 626 m2 structure will provide private bedrooms for patients receiving professional mental health care and include a dining space, lounge space, and recreation space. The extension will also include a group therapy room, which can also be used for Indigenous ceremonies.
Moss Development estimates between 25 and 50 people from the province will be employed on the construction site, depending on the type of work required.
