The Surgical, Treatment and Rehabilitation Service (STARS) – Herston Health Precinct

STARS is the first building to be completed as part of the transformation of Herston Quarter, which will become a mixed-use community, advancing wellbeing and establishing vibrant community life. STARS is a nine-level health facility, with 184 in-patient beds, seven operating theatres, three endoscopy rooms, selective specialties and covered parking.

BG&E provided structural engineering services for STARS, including review of slab design to ensure compliance and structural requirements were met, in addition to review of the rectification method to ensure the structures met adequate standards.

STARS delivers a best practice health facility, designed to improve both patient experiences and outcomes. Patients will benefit from natural light and exposure to green spaces, as opposed to a traditional clinical environment.
