Established in 1821, McGill University is an internationally known, research-intensive and student-centred university and a Canadian leader in higher education.
Located between McGill University’s downtown campus and the Mount Royal, the Royal Victoria Hospital opened its doors in 1893. Since 2015, in close collaboration with the Government of Quebec, McGill University has been working on the creation of a new pavilion of 50 000 m2 on the former Royal Victoria hospital site, following the relocation of the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) on the Glen site. This major project, which is phased over several years, is intended to be structuring both for the Montreal area and for the historic and natural borough of Mount Royal. McGill University has developed an academic vision for the pavilion primarily focused on sustainable development and public policy and is pursuing feasibility studies that will identify the technical, economic and patrimonial challenges related to the reconversion of the pavilion. The start of the renovation and construction of the pavilion is expected to begin in 2021 while the university will celebrate its 200th anniversary of foundation. The scope of the project is in the order of 700 million$.
This historic site will become a gathering place for the people of Quebec and around the world as well as a platform for learning, research and innovation. In addition, this transformation project will provide an opportunity for the university to fill its space gap.
To lead this important project, McGill University is actively seeking its Executive Director, Development Project on Royal Victoria Site.
One of the main challenges to the incumbent will be to lead the planning, development and completion of programs and activities associated with architectural planning, engineering and support services and technologies.
