St Vincent’s Private Hospital
This project involved the extension and refurbishment to the existing loading dock at St Vincent’s Private Hospital, allowing for an additional administration area, dry goods storage and clinical storage facilities.
The trade works included demolition works, structural steel framing supporting the new reinforced bondek slab, lightweight steel stud framing with fire rated sheeting and cladded externally with Exotec Cladding system. New electrical and mechanical services installed and modification of the existing hydraulic, wet and dry fire services. New vinyl flooring and office joinery.
There were many challenges with working in an active hospital and working loading dock. These included scheduled services shutdowns; managing noise and vibration during demolition and structural works; and site access coordination with structural steel installation, concrete pumping and general deliveries. All were communicated and managed successfully between the hospital and Fugen’s project team
The end result was a successful delivery of the project with positive endorsement from St Vincent’s Private Hospital.
Fugen completed the project 2 weeks ahead of contract program with zero Extension of Time Claims and the project was completed under the Hospitals budget.
