Montel, a pioneer of high-density mobile storage shelving system solutions, is pleased to announce that it has been selected by Dowland Contracting Ltd to provide high density mobile storage systems for the Qikiqtani General Hospital-Baffin Regional Hospital Renovations in Iqaluit, Nunavut. 

Awarded to Dowland Contracting Ltd by the Government of Nunavut - Department of Community and Government Services, this construction project will involve the redevelopment of the existing two story Baffin Regional Hospital into a new outpatient, specialty clinic and administrative support facility.

“We are delighted by the opportunity to be involved in these healthcare facility renovations,” mentioned Yves Belanger, Canadian National Sales Manager at Montel. “With our developed expertise and our Northern Canada project experience, we are confident in assisting Dowland Contracting to achieve the renovation project results.”

Working closely with Montel SmartSpace Solutions, the exclusive Authorized Montel Distributor serving Ottawa and surrounding areas, the awarded contract to Montel will involve providing custom-design engineered Mobilex® high-density mechanical mobile storage systems, QuadraMobile modular flooring storage systems, and SmartShelf® 4-post hybrid systems. The specialized healthcare compact and stationary storage solution will allow the Qikiqtani General Hospital and the Baffin Regional Hospital to optimize space utilization and improve organization for health records storage and pharmacy stock storage.

Boudreau, Marketing Director at Montel, “and we look forward to combining our expertise with that of Montel SmartSpace Solutions to provide added value and support to Dowland Contracting for this important contract.”
