The hospital chose a modular solution to enable them to quickly meet their increasing accommodation demands. Minimal time spent onsite meant less disruption to the day-to-day running of the hospital. The construction was completed in 8 weeks with the modules being installed in one day. A further 6 weeks onsite and the rooms were ready for new patients.
The 5 bed extension consists of four modules that connect to the existing hospital facility. Space is utilised by sitting the modules atop a ground floor services area.
Each ward room is designed for single occupancy and includes an ensuite, modern furnishings and a bulkhead air-conditioning system that enables room temperatures to be individually adjusted to patient comfort.
