CORE was engaged by Project Coordination to support the delivery of NSW Health Infrastructure’s $10+ million upgrade to Griffith Hospital, NSW.
The project involved the construction of a new Ambulatory Care Hub as well as extensions to the hospital’s Critical Care and Inpatient Units to increase patient capacity, enhance service functionality and welcome the addition of new support areas.
The plan also required improvements to existing car park facilities along with other external works.
6 months – design
12 months – construction
Our Approach: achieving a detailed understanding of the client’s needs
When working within the Health sector, dedicating the necessary time to listen and develop a strong understanding of a client’s needs is more critical than ever.
From the initial consultation stage, the CORE team ensured that the right amount of time was spent upfront in order to deliver a better long-term result.
As always, strong, open lines of communication played a key role in determining project success and saw CORE working alongside on-site teams as well as the hospital board to ensure proposed solutions aligned with the hospital’s operational requirements.
The Outcome: delivering optimal design, reducing time and costs
The redevelopment of Griffith Base Hospital was a multi-layered, complex project with a clear objective to significantly enhance the hospital precinct, its processes and operations.
CORE’s detailed and thorough approach to the project’s design phase was invaluable.
Our 3D modelling capabilities enabled key stakeholders to seamlessly visualise the proposed solutions and facilitated critical conversations during the early stages of the project – saving significant amounts of time and money during the construction phase.
The 12-month construction stage was delivered to scope, on time and to budget with the hospital remaining fully operational throughout the period.
