- Multiple staged delivery around a fully operational hospital
- Significant planning constraints to overcome in the master planning phase
- Technically demanding clinical facility scope
- Significant interaction and negotiation with a number of neighbours and stakeholder to obtain the required planning approvals
RCP has provided project management and programming services for the life of this major redevelopment of the Sunnybank Private Hospital, from the masterplan stage through to construction, which is currently underway and scheduled to be completed by the end of 2017.
The redevelopment includes the demolition of the existing inefficient on-grade car park and site entrance. This will be replaced by a new signalised entrance and a radically different car park configuration which greatly increases the number of car parking spaces available for patients and staff. The street frontage will be transformed with a new three storey strata titled consultant suite block, incorporating two new floors of medical suites and one level of additional car parking.
The existing hospital clinical facilities are being expanded to include two new cutting edge operating theatres, including a cardiac catheter laboratory, associated clinical spaces and new, greatly improved staff amenities areas. Due to the increase in operating theatre capacity, the existing theatre recovery and day surgery units are being expanded and fully refurbished. Extensive upgrades are being undertaken to the site services infrastructure whilst these works are underway, which will bring the site up to the standards of a newly constructed health facility. All works will be staged to enable the facility to remain operational for the duration of the build.
