Project Description

GOLD COAST PRIVATE HOSPITAL

A flexible facility with room for growth

As Australia’s Gold Coast becomes ever more popular as a place to live, its health infrastructure is under growing pressure.

One new development helping to meet the demands of a rising – and ageing – population is the Gold Coast Private Hospital, a seven-floor, state-of-the-art facility from Healthscope, one of the country’s leading healthcare providers.

A New Private Hospital for the Gold Coast

The 284-bed hospital forms a key part of the Gold Coast Health & Knowledge Precinct, an expanding complex of healthcare buildings including the $1.7 billion Gold Coast University Hospital and $150m Griffith University Health Centre.

The new private facility comprises seven floors of top-class clinical space and support accommodation, including 13 operating theatres, an emergency department, intensive care unit and maternity centre, plus consulting suites for a range of specialisms from oncology to kidney health. A kitchen, workshop and four-storey open-deck car park are incorporated in the lower levels of the 50,000m2 building.

Bringing Comfort to Patients

Our services on this exceptional facility, which is designed to feel more like a hotel than a clinic, included mechanical engineering, fire protection, vertical transportation and medical gas infrastructure design.

Designing a Future-Ready Hospital

The hospital’s owners are looking to the future, and a crucial part of the brief was to keep the building sufficiently flexible to cope with future expansion. Already, the next phase of works has been fast-tracked in the face of huge demand for the hospital’s services and will see the number of beds upped to 344, plus the addition of 10 operating theatres.

We designed the building services with growth in mind, leaving sufficient space for new plant and equipment to serve a larger facility, and paving the way for seamless expansion. The project was also documented in REVIT 3D to ensure a fully co-ordinated design, reducing the risk of additional time and cost during construction.
