John Holland recently built the largest private Hospital in South Australia, adding to its already suburb health care facilities. Rondo worked alongside Contractor Brighton Australia and Architect STH Architects, to deliver this state-of-the-art facility. Rondo supported the $400m build with a range of products and systems. The project required a full seismic wall and ceiling design, a lead lined wall design and external soffit design with wind loadings. The build featured a few service clashes and engineering issues; however, our experienced engineering team were quick to find both design and engineering solutions. Through a strong working relationship, Rondo and Brighton Australia joined forces and provided a sound product to John Holland.
The hospital has a range of inclusions, most importantly South Australia’s only privately-owned 24-hour emergency department. Rondo was engaged to provide special requirements and technical advice for various additions to the hospital such as the radiology rooms and isolation areas. This extensive project included 344 single occupancy rooms with ensuite bathrooms, 20 ICU beds and 66-day surgery beds, 16 operating theatres, a 15,000 sqm rehabilitation and allied health wing. The hospital also entails a unique custom hybrid theatre combined with an operating theatre and radiology suite which was designed to diagnose and treat patients faster. Other inclusions consist of radiology, pathology, onsite pharmacy, coffee shop and a rehabilitation wing with a hydrotherapy pool and mobility garden.
