Campbell River Hospital Issued Building Permit for $112 Million

A building permit has been issued for $112 million for the hospital construction in Campbell River. The new Campbell River Hospital will include a 95-bed, $266-million facility to be built next to the current Campbell River hospital site.

Uchucklesaht Tribe to Issue Invitation-Only Tender for Construction of New Cultural Centre in Port Alberni

The Uchucklesaht Tribe is expected to issue an invitation-only tender in March for the construction of a new cultural centre and central administrative office at the site of the now demolished Somass Hotel at the base of Argyle Street in Port Alberni. The Uchucklesaht Tribe purchased the old Somass Hotel in the summer of 2013 with the plan to convert the original building, but concrete between the second and third floors was discovered to be unsound and therefore too expensive to continue on with the restoration.

Heritage Alteration Permit Issued for Addition to Waverley Hotel

Cumberland Council have approved a Heritage Alteration Permit and Development Variance Permit application to construct an addition to the Waverley Hotel which will include a new kitchen, two retail units and two residential units. The addition will be 511.0 in size. Construction is expected to begin once a building permit is in place.
