Neuro Lyman Duff

Client : McGill University
Completion Date : 2022


Momentum was mandated by McGill University to prepare a logistics and waste management study for the Neuro Hospital and the pavilion Lyman-Duff. The primary objective of the study was to identify potential solutions for the relocation of the waste management compactors, located in the Royal-Victoria Hospital, which will not be accessible due to the renovation work of the Royal-Vic project.
The work began with a phase of stakeholder consultation to identify the current logistics process of each stakeholder and their waste and logistics needs. This information was used to determine the use of current logistic areas and to evaluate the potential increase of activity at each area. Additionally, vehicle tracking analysis was utilized to determine the largest vehicle that can access each area and flag issues with the current site characteristics. The decisive element studied was the volume of different types of waste generated by the complex and how this is currently managed by the university internally.

Three potential solutions for waste management were presented and a complementary solution for logistics was identified to improve the efficiency. These solutions proposed important changes to the current logistics in terms of frequency, compactor sizes, collecting vehicles sizes that had to be explored in more detail with the contractors.

The results of the analysis informed the client on the complexity of their waste and logistics operations and provided some solutions to implement in the short term once the current logistics zone of the hospital will not be accessible anymore.
