The upgrade of the Modbury Hospital, which is part of the State Government of South Australia’s Transforming Health initiative, has delivered improved hospital infrastructure and consolidated health services for residents in Adelaide’s northeastern suburbs.
Built Environs’s project team delivered this fast-tracked, multi-staged project within a live hospital environment, ensuring that Modbury Hospital and its associated health services remained operational throughout the project’s duration. Notably, the team’s comprehensive and rigorous approach to quality resulted in the defect-free handover of each separate stage, with no outstanding defects at completion.
The project was successfully delivered under budget, with the final stage achieving an early hand over. The new Level 3 ward expands the hospital’s existing rehabilitation services from 20 to 52 beds. The building is fitted with a 10kw solar panel system, solar heating for the pool and domestic hotwater. The building is serviced by gas powered VRV which helps achieve the 5 star IGRAT rating.
