Arcadis’ team provided structural, civil, façade and traffic engineering services to deliver a contemporary healthcare facility offering a 50-space emergency department, 14 operating theatres, six surgical suites, state-of-the-art intensive care and critical care units, and a modern inpatient mental health service.

The hospital will feature 439 beds including a 61-bed Mental Health unit, and a 1346-space multi-storey car park, a 41-space on-grade car park, and ancillary precinct-wide development, landscaping and road works.

Arcadis took a collaborative approach to achieve a sustainable and successful outcome over the life of the project. A positive working relationship was built on a shared commitment to deliver the best quality integrated health service to the community of the Northern Beaches area of Sydney.

 

 

Arcadis’ team coordinated a very complex structure with all engineering disciplines to achieve structural integrity while maintaining the architectural features.

The team used Building Information Modelling (BIM) to validate the design process against the initial requirements, providing benefits for both the client and contractors through a transparent process. Spatial conflicts between elements in an asset are detected in time, in an efficient process, and solved before manifesting during construction or operation.

In addition, Arcadis produced visualizations from BIM to allow clients and stakeholders to participate interactively during the project development, and all parties could see any possible issues/changes at an early stage. Drawings, renders, specifications, submittals, and schedules are generated consistently based on the integrated BIM, reducing costs significantly.
