ACCIONA received two of the most important awards in the concessions sector: in 2008 it received the Gold Award given annually by The Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnership's annual Gold Award, which is the benchmark organization in its sector in Canada, as part of the National Awards for Innovation and Excellence in PPP projects; ACCIONA also received the North America Deal of the Year award for the year's best financial operation, awarded by the prestigious PPI publication.
The CAD $237 million Fort St John Hospital was awarded this year’s GOLD Award in the General Contractor over $40 Million category by the Vancouver Regional Construction Association (VRCA) for setting a high bar, not only as one of Northern Canada’s largest regional hospitals, but for also achieving LEED Gold certification and CCPPP Silver Award Infrastructure . The P3 project involved the design and construction and a 30-year Operation and Maintenance concession for a 55-bed hospital with a residential annexe for seniors with an additional 123 beds The Acciona Infrastructure/Stuart Olson team had to overcome numerous challenges - including the project's remote location and sub-zero temperatures in winter - to deliver the hospital on time and to budget. Ground was broken at the 40-acre site in the summer of 2009. Completion was in May 2012.
ACCIONA has committed itself to adopting Pacific Green Standards, which result in excellence both in design and respect for the environment. Sustainability is also guaranteed by LEED Gold certification for the project which means that the building blends in with its surroundings, from construction phase to operation. These are some of the landmarks achieved in relation to this certification.
