Weeks to build
Off the back of our success with Moura Community Hospital, Australia’s first stand-alone modular public health facility, we embarked on this exciting emergency services precinct with Queensland Health.
The Alpha Emergency Hub was the first co-located hospital, ambulance, police and fire facility in Queensland. The hospital, residential aged care and staff accommodation facilities have been purpose-designed and built as modules to allow for expansion if needed. The thirty-four modules have been designed to come together and produce a cohesive building with strong architectural appeal.
Services were also of abundance with the new hospital providing 24 hour emergency access, two inpatient beds, two observation beds, two resuscitation bays, a private practice clinic, a four bed residential aged care facility, outpatient treatment facilities, telehealth facilities & non-clinical support services.
The facility also contains a combined Police Service and Fire & Rescue facility (with room for the SES in future), Ambulance Service centre, community meeting rooms, amenities and car parking.
Further, a variety of sustainable initiatives were incorporated into the facility including a 15kW solar system to reduce electricity demands as well as solar hot water with gas back-up. These were important due to the remote location of Alpha and limited electricity supply available from the grid.
