Modscape has been working closely with Ramsay Health, SHAPE and Team 2 Architects to deliver a modern health care facility which incorporates low maintenance yet high quality materials to provide additional patient rooms, a rehabilitation gym and necessary staff amenities.
With a combined space of 1598 sqm, the design comprises of 29 modules that connects to the existing hospital facilities via a central linking corridor.
The modules were installed over one weekend using a 450 tonne crane and are raised above a ground floor car park in order to maximise the footprint of the site.
Window seat desks create an articulation on the façade which departs from the traditional, monolithic hospital design.
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.
Minimal time spent onsite meant less disruption to the day-to-day running of the hospital which, for the hospital was rather imperative.
