Fiona Stanley is a leading Australian epidemiologist noted for her public health work, research into child and maternal health, and birth disorders. The $2 billion namesake healthcare facility is the largest health infrastructure project in Western Australia and encapsulates ambitious design, green vistas and a true sense of well-being and healing.
BG&E played a significant role in the design and construction of the 232,000-square metre cohesive healthcare precinct, which includes a:
- 783-bed, seven-floor hospital providing surgical, acute care, emergency, and inpatient and outpatient services;
- pathology and education facility that is formed by two individual two-storey buildings, that sit over a 586-bay car park;
- 60-bed mental health building;
- administration building comprising two levels of office space and a plant room at roof level;
- four-storey rehabilitation centre; and
- three-storey central plant, plus a basement area that feeds into a buried service tunnel that supplies the other buildings.
Our talented team provided civil and structural design services for the hospital, specifically for the internal roads, main drainage infrastructure, carpark, roadway ancillaries, pedestrian paths, cycleways, path ancillaries, pavements, rigid concrete, spill resistance and segmental paving.
BG&E’s facades experts undertook the façade design, system costing, materials science assessment and material selection, shop drawings, submission reviews, and conducted factory and site inspections.
The striking façade includes precast concrete panels with multiple finishes, curtain walling, aluminium clad and glazed canopies, composite aluminium cladding, skylights, external shading devices and glazed entrance walls.
