Alberta Health Services (AHS) was seeking a new health facility to serve residents in northeast Edmonton. This facility was constructed to accommodate a wide range of medical and community services, including family health services, perinatal programs, immunization services, laboratory services and school health services. Urgent care services for Edmontonians with unexpected but non-life-threatening health concerns would also take pressure off the emergency room at nearby Royal Alexandra Hospital.

JEN COL Construction was hired by AHS in 2007 as the construction manager to lead the East Edmonton Health Centre (EEHC) project, which included the construction of the new 6,000m2 facility (with a large underground parkade) and renovation of the historic Cromdale School, originally built in 1930. EEHC is a revolutionary health facility constructed primarily on a greenfield site which required the integration of the new building and the historical building.
