The demolition of the former hospital (OTMH) site is scheduled to begin this summer 2017 and take approximately 12 months to complete.The town is committed to safely deconstructing the former hospital and Helen Lawson buildings and has a comprehensive Demolition Strategy to guide the process.

Attend our open house to find out more about the strategy including:

  • performance guidelines
  • abatement and demolition activities
  • mitigations to minimize dust, noise and traffic

The overall demolition approach will be completed using standard mechanical demolition which involves mechanized equipment, articulated lifts and cranes. The demolition of the buildings will use a 3Rs approach – reduce, reuse and recycle – with the contractor diverting as much waste as possible from landfill.

The Oakville-Trafalgar Memorial Hospital (OTMH) site was part of the town’s overall South Central Public Lands Study (SCPLS) — which reviewed a number of key sites, owned by the town, in south central Oakville (e.g. surplus school sites, Oakville Arena) and made recommendations about their future use, including recreation uses. The Former Hospital Site Project is about the town working with our community partners to create a vibrant new community centre, park, and future residential housing to meet the needs of Oakville residents.
