About the Project

A modular hospital building was a new concept for both the builder and architect involving many non-standard processes including the installation of building’s hygienic finishes, specialist health fittings, equipment and joinery provisions which  included most of the mechanical, electrical, data, medical gas, and speciality services and infrastructure being installed during the manufacturing process, with only final assembly and connections on site.

PDT reviewed and adapted the original architects schematic design identifying operational changes and refining the brief and room data sheets. PDT further coordinated the design to suit modular construction methodology requirements, structural and services infrastructure provisions and site specific requirements. Resulting in a solution that provides a low cost hospital building and minimised site disruption during construction.  The design solution also offers consideration of future use with expansion possible through introduction of additional modular buildings.  The hospital can also be dismantled or relocated should this be required.
