Robina Hospital is located in the heart of the Robina CBD and is the sixth largest hospital in Queensland.
The original hospital was built at Robina as a private hospital offering some public services in 2000 and acquired by the Queensland Government in June 2002. The Robina Hospital Expansion completed in 2012 saw the hospital double in size to a 364-bed facility with 80 per cent single rooms.
Uni-span took on the following challenges during this expansion project:
- Existing hospital facilities during the expansion,
- Safe access for hospital patients, staff and the general public is in line with recent amendments to the scaffolding code,
- Ongoing co-ordination between the contractor, Hospital and Uni-Span when scheduling material deliveries to various work fronts on a live site.
All facets of scaffolding required on this project ranged from conventional builds of edge protection; perimeter containment to birdcage scaffolds and cantilever applications. 1172 tonnes of scaffold was supplied to the site, covering 19500m.2 Once the scaffold was fully erected, it really complimented the overall building phase of the construction process.
The new and refurbished building services now include surgery, general and specialist medicine, aged care and dementia, emergency medicine, intensive care, cardiology, mental health, radiology and ambulatory care services & the Bond University Clinical Education and Research Centre (100 seat lecture, tutorial rooms, clinical skills labs, research offices and student amenities).
