Design & Construct
The Building 8 Project is a new building constructed as part of the ACT Government’s Canberra Hospital Expansion Project. SHAPE delivered the project under a Design and Construct model, with the scope requiring the fast and efficient construction of a new 4-storey building.
To speed up the programme, the team utilised a semi-modular style of construction involving the fabrication of most of the structure off-site with efficient on-site assembly. This allowed fitout to commence immediately once a floor was completed. Each floor plate was completed in 7 days with the building structure completed in a 5 week period.
SHAPE completed the entire building and fit-out from below ground to plant deck on the rooftop. The facility houses various hospital organisations and is made up of consult and medical spaces and general office space.
SHAPE completed the project with zero LTI’s with 97,000 hours on site.
The modular construction also allows for improved environmental performance through reduced waste and Green Star credentials in the façade air leakage performance. A high performance chilled beam HVAC system with a single pass through system provides industry-leading air quality throughout the building.
