Greenslopes Private Hospital
This $34 million expansion allowed the hospital to provide a comprehensive range of facilities and services to both veterans and private patients, and made Greenslopes the largest Private hospital in Queensland at the time.
Originally constructed in 1942 as a military hospital, Greenslopes Private Hospital was designed to provide ongoing care to veterans and war widows. The hospital remained a repatriation hospital until its sale to Ramsay Health Care in 1995.
Bringing the hospital's capacity to 527 beds, the scope of work included the management of design and construction of extensions to four operating theatres, 90-bed ward block, 32-suite medical centre, associated car parking and infrastructure, rationalising campus-wide services, demolition of some original structures and the upgrading of landscaping.
All of the works were successfully carried out within the confines and constraints of a fully operational hospital environment without any unscheduled loss of service. Through the open and co-operative approach to the projects by both Ramsay Health Care and John Holland, additional scopes of work were also able to be incorporated within the various project component budgets.
