State-of-the-art medical facilities

The building will more than double services available locally for maternity and paediatric care with purpose-built wards for birthing, maternity, women’s health and newborn care services and also includes new paediatric services with dedicated emergency, day stay and inpatient facilities including carer zones so parents or carers and can comfortably stay overnight.
A highly complex and challenging project
The project involved construction of a large concrete framed structure; coordination and installation of complex services and systems; detailed fitout, fixture installation and finishes work; the procurement and installation of extensive major medical equipment (MME); various façade systems & finishes and a range of external works.
The design of all elements was supported through the use of a Building Information Model (BIM), which detected clashes of services in the design documentation and enabled a range of complex spatial issues to be resolved.
