Built Environs is the Managing Contractor for the Modbury Hospital Upgrade – one of the most complex hospital redevelopments undertaken in South Australia.

This program of work is improving access to patient care and enhancing the design of the hospital to meet contemporary needs and models of care.

The project will deliver clinical upgrades to high priority areas, as well as key infrastructure and building services upgrades. The upgrades include refurbishment within the existing buildings and new build works.

Infrastructure priorities include façade remediation, seismic structural upgrade and building services.

The project is a fast-tracked and multi-staged delivery within a live hospital environment. 100% of the 13,000 m2 work in scope is directly above, beside or below operational hospital areas.

The hospital and associated health services have remained operational throughout construction. Careful planning, staging and consultation with local hospital stakeholders have been key to mitigating disruption.

Extensive electrical, mechanical, medial gas, hydraulics, and fire services infrastructure upgrades have been undertaken. The project team has utilised point cloud surveying to coordinate new works with the existing services and structure within the hospital.

The project is on track for timely completion.
