NEW ROYAL ADELAIDE HOSPITAL
Project Location— Adelaide, SA
The New Royal Adelaide Hospital by HYLC Joint Venture is located on the edge of Adelaide CBD and is the largest building project in South Australia.
The building consolidates healthcare facilities from across a number of sites in Adelaide, creating a single major hub for the city’s healthcare needs into the 21st century.
The façade is characterised by a demanding technical performance brief which includes detailed requirements for extremely high levels of acoustic performance, structural requirements exceeding the current Australian Standards and a seismic performance brief for a post-disaster functionality.
The façade was tested for acoustic, weathering, structural and seismic performance after an extensive review of the project brief and performance requirements.
BG&E Façades were engaged as façade consultant to review the brief and tender documentation and to ensure the appointed façade contractor met the project requirements.
