Macarthur Private Hospital - Campbelltown

A tight site and timeframe of 5 months required Design for Manufacture and Assembly innovations with our clients, Erilyan, to achieve this Private Hospital adjacent an operational health facility.

PROJECT REQUIREMENTS

  • maintain adjacent fully operational health facility during the build phase

  • low impact on hospital in terms of operations and access

  • low noise and low dust impact on adjacent health facility

  • maintain carpark as fully operational after build

  • complete within 5 months


AUSTRUSS SCOPE

  • composite form work system

  • form work floor cassettes - hybrid of steel floor joists with suspended concrete over to support 3Kpa live loads

  • bathroom pods

  • internal wall frames & roof trusses

  • load bearing external wall panels - pre manufactured and clad offsite in Austruss offsite facility - (fully fire rated with paint finish)


DfMA BENEFITS:

  • speed of construction for new building

  • low impact on adjacent operational health facility

  • low impact construction process (limited trades, tools, noise and dust on site)

  • low impact because of reduced transport movements

  • less trades to co-ordinate

  • less waste with off site procurement

  • no back propping was required during concrete pour and post pour due to structural integrity of structure

  • able to use car park as the staging area, ie, not filled with back propping as part of construction process

  • no perimeter scaffold required due to facade panels acting as handrail (note 1st floor deck is 8m above ground level
