Completion year 2015
WGE’s structural and civil teams were engaged to assist in delivering the new ward expansion, carpark and theatre renovations at Mitcham Private Hospital (MPH) in Mitcham, VIC. The $8 million project involved delivery of a new 21 bed mental health ward extension created over an existing carpark, which was sunk into the ground to become an undercroft carpark.
Complex internal renovations were required to create an expanded second operating theatre, gymnasium and auxiliary spaces. In order to maximise headroom in the undercroft carpark, the gantry frame supporting the modular mental health ward was optimised along with the hydraulic and wet fire strategy.
WGE were integral to successfully delivering the project to the tight design and construction timeframe, which was a key client objective. Modular construction was used to land and complete the ward, carpark and theatre renovations within 6 weeks compared to a conventional build time of 6-7 months.
