Summary: Sunnybrook Hospital “M” Wing expansion is a vertical expansion of an existing 4 story building, adding 4 floors and a mechanical penthouse. The final phase of construction required the removal and replacement of the existing porous pavement system with Grasspave2. 1,000 sqm (or 25 rolls of 2mx20m) were installed within a few days.
