Unique modular construction refurbishment project in the inner city suburb of Windsor.
The Avenue Private Hospital was an exciting project undertaken by BLP, alongside owner and operator Ramsay Health Care, one of Australia’s largest private hospital operators.
Utilising modular construction in the health sector is unique particularly in relation to this type and scale of the project. It was paramount that hospital operations were to remain uninterrupted and that existing operating theatres would function as usual in an ongoing capacity.
In undertaking this project by way of modular construction, it established from the outset immense programming efficiencies that led to increased benefits for the hospital. This included being able to install the 36 modules, “knit” them together and fit out the shell in “lock-up” mode with greater speed than conventional construction techniques.
BLP believe this project has set a new benchmark for modular construction within the health sector and highlights possibilities of this type of construction in the future.
