Brookfield Multiplex has topped out the new 30,000m² clinical services building at the Royal North Shore Hospital (RNSH) in Sydney, Australia.
The building is a $150m New South Wales Government funded project that will offer 177 beds and 32 cots, with 84% of the rooms having single beds.
Designed by Building Studio Architects and Woods Bagot, the eight-storey building will link with the hospital’s existing infrastructure and services.
Surrounded by Westbourne Street, Herbert Street, Red Road and Kolling Lane in St Leonards, the new building will feature a private mental health unit on level two, a women’s health and maternity unit across levels three and four.
The facility will house a general inpatient unit on level five and a severe burns unit on level six. Plans also include a pediatric inpatient unit on level seven.
Construction on the building, which started in early April 2013, is anticipated to be completed in late 2014.
Brookfield Multiplex regional managing director of New South Wales David Ghannoum said, "Works are being undertaken on a working campus, our dedicated project consultants, subcontractors and suppliers have all collaborated tirelessly to ensure the project runs smoothly with minimal disruption to the rest of the hospital campus."
Brookfield Multiplex is also delivering the new Chris O’Brien Lifehouse at RPA in Sydney and the $2bn Fiona Stanley Hospital in Perth, which is due for completion by the end of 2013.
