Inverell District Hospital

This $60 million redevelopment involved a major upgrade of the Inverell Health Service, including a new modern hospital, a refurbished facility and enhanced services for patients in the surrounding communities.

BG&E provided the civil and structural concept, schematic and detailed design for Stage 1A of the development, which features a new hospital building with an Emergency Department, inpatient unit, pediatric zone, maternity ward, palliative care, medical imaging, day surgery, renal dialysis, operating theatre, central sterilising department, kiosk, reception and admissions and a mortuary.

The construction included piled and pad footings, slab on ground, post-tensioned suspended slabs and lightweight steel roof framing. The scope expanded to include additional CT scanning rooms and facilities, which required collaboration with the other consultants and incorporation of the amendments into the design.

BG&E also completed the concept, schematic and tender design for Stage 1B which involved modifying the existing brick and timber hospital building for community health use, and reconfiguring wards into consultation rooms and offices.
