Noarlunga Hospital Redevelopment

SHAPE was engaged by SA Health to procure this project in five stages. Our team liaised directly with the hospital to ensure good communication with all staff in relation to the shutdown periods.

Client: SA Health
Designer: Hames Sharley
Delivery Model: Managing Contractor
Location: Noarlunga Centre, SA
Duration: 69 weeks
Project Size: 2,400 m2

Critical works plans were submitted where service shutdowns were going to affect the hospital.

Early notification was critical during these periods, along with daily communication and weekly project updates, and positive feedback was provided from the hospital.

The main challenges were the shutdown of existing live services, dust control and coordination of input from infection control. The state of the existing structure (ie trusses) also proved a challenge as we worked closely with the design team to make modifications.

Regular walk-throughs were held with the end user group at different stages of the project to minimise potential rework post-occupancy. Walk-throughs were also undertaken regularly for infection control from a construction and post occupancy suitability aspect which proved to minimise rework at the completion of the project.
