Weeks to design & build
Hutchies was delighted to work with Metro South Hospital & Health Service to bring a much-needed expansion to the Logan Hospital's sub-acute care ward. Since the Hospital opened its Rehabilitation Unit in 2014, there has been a large increase in the demand for non-critical patient care. To cater for the growth, Hutchies is constructing innovative prefabricated buildings that will support an additional 28 beds in the sub-acute care unit.
The buildings were constructed off-site in a controlled environment at Hutchies' Modular Yard in Yatala, QLD. Creating prefabricated buildings allowed our specialty team to work with no weather, trade or supply issues, giving us the ability to deliver a consistently high-quality project with minimal waste and disruption to Hospital activities. This modular health approach was a great solution for Logan Hospital, bringing the capacity increase in a timely and cost-effective manner.
Hutchies delivered the project through a D&C arrangement, managing all stakeholder consultation, design and mobilisation activities including site inductions, work methods statements, and organising all permits and protocols for the works. Our experience working in live operating environments enabled us to seamlessly deliver all site preparation and enabling works such as demolition, services diversions, provisions of services infrastructure and civil works. We planned accordingly to ensure that our on-site activities including the creation of a linkway to the existing Hospital and the delivery and installation of the modular buildings will bring minimal disruptions to patients, staff and local residents.
