Client: Northumberland County
Location: Cobourg, Ontario
Building Type: Health Care
Contract: Lump Sum
Based in the Town of Cobourg, the Golden Plough Lodge (GPL) is the only municipally operated long-term-care home in Northumberland. The GPL is firmly entrenched within the history and culture of the Northumberland community, having been in operation for over 100 years. Over the course of its history, the GPL has provided quality, compassionate care to hundreds of local families.
In order to continue to best meet the needs of residents as well as current best practices in long-term care, a new 180-bed GPL will be built in Cobourg. This new 195,000 SF facility will be located adjacent to the existing facility on County-owned land. An innovative addition to this project will be the integration of the Northumberland County Archives & Museum (NCAM) into the redevelopment of the GPL. The new cultural heritage facility will include an expanded reading room for public research, space for exhibitions and public programs, a climate controlled collection storage room and a dedicated processing and conservation lab.
