Frankston Hospital Stage 3 & ED Redevelopment
Client: Peninsula Health
Project: New Emergency Department and Hospital ward expansion
Completion Date: February 2015
Completion Time: 19 Months
Value: $49 Million
The Stage 3 & ED Redevelopment provided a new Emergency Department and ward expansion and was a significant milestone in the continuing development of health services on the Mornington Peninsula.
The project comprised the construction of facilities over three levels adjacent to the surgical precinct. An Emergency Department is located under the new wards and contains general treatment cubicles, treatment areas as well as specialist treatment rooms and consultation areas. Level 2 is a 24 bed short stay facility, Level 3 and Level 4 each contain 32 bed wards and associated staff and support service areas.
The works included the necessary utility infrastructure interfaces to current hospital areas to facilitate service connections. Existing pad footings were lowered to allow for the new structure to connect to the existing hospital. These pad footings were located directly below the hospital’s operating theatres which required careful planning, coordination and stringent safety controls. The project was built amidst an extremely busy hospital with over 300 patient beds and hundreds of staff, visitors and other stakeholders on a daily basis. We worked closely with Project Managers Johnstaff and Lyons Architects to deliver this large and complex project in an operational environment.
