Perth Children's Hospital
This $1.2 billion landmark project comprises the design and construction of a new, state-of-the-art children’s hospital to replace the existing Princess Margaret Hospital for children, which was constructed over 100 years ago.
Located on the QEII Medical Centre site in Nedlands, the hospital will provide tertiary-level health services including inpatient and outpatient care and ambulatory care services. It will provide the best possible clinical care for future generations, with a 298-bed capacity, 12 operating theatres, an integrated research and educational facility and Western Australia's only paediatric trauma centre and research facility. The project is approximately 120,000 sqm, extending up to eight storeys high with an extensive basement under the entire footprint of the structure.
The double skinned façade incorporates a mechanism to filter the sun’s rays, which is designed to assist in cooling the building and contribute to energy efficiency. The net result of this technology will be a higher level of comfort for all patients and staff, reduced energy costs and maximised views across Kings Park.
