St Leonards, New South Wales, Australia - Re-imagining an ageing hospital in St Leonards as a contemporary health campus responsive to contemporary medical and community needs.
The Royal North Shore Hospital may have opened in 1885, but a massive $A1.2 billion transformation is creating a high-tech health and medical precinct able to meet the needs of a rapidly changing community well into the twenty first century.
At the heart of the biggest healthcare project in NSW in 30 years is the world-class 9 storey Acute Services Building that not only incorporates 53 existing buildings, but is designed around a ‘whole-life’ approach so the building can change as health demographics and medical technologies evolve.
Arcadis’s innovative design services supports a flexible, future proofed campus. Sophisticated whole life Structural modelling allowed the elimination of permanent movement joints to permit easy re-planning of internal areas, the capacity to add extra storeys without building disruption and the allowance for vibration sensitive future medical equipment.
