Value: 
$582 Million
Completion Year: 
Ongoing
Category: 
Healthcare
Challenge: 

Engaged by Lend Lease throughout the schematic design phase in a full design capacity, LCI were set a clear challenge to provide a set of innovations to the incumbent design. The criteria set by the end client Health Infrastructure, was to achieve a 10% cost saving associated with the innovations.

As a Greenfield Development in the order of 23 hectares with a developable area of 16 hectares, this project was prime for opportunity to innovate. The 70,000sqm hospital comprises the following departments.

  • Pathology;
  • Mortuary;
  • Ambulatory Care Centre;
  • Renal Dialysis Department;
  • Acute and sub-acute inpatient units;
  • Paediatric facilities;
  • Maternity services;
  • Special care nursery;
  • Intensive care unit and close observation unit;
  • Integrated older person services;
  • Rehabilitation;
  • Mental Health services;
  • Pharmacy;
  • Day oncology and radiation oncology;
  • Emergency department;
  • Surgical department;
  • Central sterile services department;
  • Medical imaging department;\
  • Rooftop helipad;
  • External on grade staff and public carparks associated roadways; and
  • Allocation for future development expansion areas.
Solution: 

In conjunction with Lend Lease, the project team provided 37 Innovations covering areas including ‘Blue Sky’, ‘Site Master Plan’, ‘Engineering’, Technology’ & ‘Structure’.

The 15 innovations put forward by LCI were not only cost reducing, but also resulted in a better engineering outcome from an operational and work health and safety aspect.

Outcome: 

Of the 15 Engineering innovations put forward by LCI, 10 were adopted by Health Infrastructure and the Local Health District. These were rapidly implemented into the Design, resulting in a cost effective engineered solution.
