PAE was selected under a federal mandate to advance a range of services in support of the Canadian government, including design expertise and delivery of up to ten 100-bed mobile health units, under the SNC-Lavalin PAE Inc. joint venture, the company reported on Monday.
“We’re proud to bring our specialized expertise to bolster Canada’s health preparedness. PAE has a long history of responding to humanitarian crises around the world,” said PAE President and CEO, and 2020 Wash100 Award recipient John Heller. “Working with SNC-Lavalin, our talented workforce in Canada will deliver that same rapid response critical to Canada’s health readiness.”
As part of the federal mandate, the SNC-Lavalin and PAE partnership will arrange for the delivery, construction, warehousing and sustainment of up to ten 100-bed mobile health units. The joint venture will also deliver advanced medical and logistical integration under one program management structure that will rapidly respond to changing requirements in support of contingency measures.
SNC-Lavalin PAE will provide designs and configurations aligned with the standardized best practices with innovative progressive solutions to accommodate large and smaller urban settings, as well as remote settings.
“Safety is at the heart of our work at SNC-Lavalin, and it is a privilege to continue to provide our expertise to help support Canadian efforts as we have done for government agencies around the world,” said Ian Edwards, President and CEO, SNC-Lavalin.
In addition, the companies will use agile and flexible contracting and procurement for the provision of medical logistics services on an as-needed basis to sustain the support mission of the mobile health units. National and global cooperation will also be fundamental to achieving the level of readiness required to protect Canadians against global health challenges in the future.
“In an enduring partnership supporting the Canadian Armed Forces on deployed operations in Bosnia, Kabul and Kandahar in Afghanistan, and currently in Iraq and Kuwait, it is an honor and privilege to leverage the significant experience, capabilities and resources of SNC-Lavalin and PAE in serving Canadians at home,” said Robert Spencer, president and general manager of SNC-Lavalin PAE Inc.
