With more than 36,000 children presenting to the Emergency Department and 18,000 admitted to the Sydney Children’s Hospital each year, the health department saw a need to expand the current hospital by developing a new five-storey Hospital wing, for which Rondo provided extensive technical design support. The installation of the intricate external façade framing using combinations of Top Hats and Steel Stud proved to be a challenge as each window opening was of various sizing.
This hurdle was overcome with the assistance of Rondo’s Technical Team who created unique designs of the external façade framing which pleased Contractor Conrad Linings and Builder, Broad Construction Services. Furthermore, Rondo worked in consultation with Hyder Engineers for a solution of the 150mm MAXIframe® External Walls and Framing that required galvanised sheet metal to be installed on top of the framework to prevent any potential water ingress, with Rondo supervising the correct installation. The $30 million project was completed in early 2013.
