St George Private Hospital Specialist Centre
New purpose built specialist centre to offer an additional 2,800m2 of NLA over 5 levels
Buildcorp was engaged by Ramsay Health Care to undertake the planning, design and construction of the new Specialist Centre.
The new 6 storey building features 5 levels of cold shell consulting suites, an imaging facility, new chamber substation, utilities room, waste room, pump room, and top floor plant room facilities. The team also completed an integrated fit-out of level 2 including consulting suites, break out spaces and waiting areas.
Project scope also includes the construction of a 75m pedestrian link bridge between the Specialist Centre and main St George Private Hospital building across the busy South Street, and a 2 storey extension to the existing multi-storey carpark building.
Working closely with the design team, Buildcorp identified several key issues critical to achieving the project objectives. One of these challenging aspects is the shared boundary walls with neighbours on two elevations and a tight site bound by busy main roads on the remaining sides. The team developed detailed site management and materials handling plans to minimise impact on surrounding neighbours and road users, and nominated crane locations to avoid lifting over adjoining buildings.
