BE Collective staff provided a range of specialist Project Management services for the Construction phase of the redevelopment of the Toowoomba SurgiCentre (TSC). The TSC provides day-surgery and positive Health outcomes for the Toowoomba community, being the first day-surgery hospital in Australia .
The redevelopment involved the construction of a new wing on an acquired adjacent acquisition residential lot, and also renovation of the existing facility. The new wing connected to the old by way of penetrations through existing concrete tilt up panels located on the old property boundary.
Included in the new wing is a ten bed 1st stage recovery and a sixteen chair 2nd stage recovery, clean and dirty utility rooms, post op reception and storerooms. Redevelopment of the existing facility included the construction and commissioning of a surgical theatre, significant structural, services and floorplan modifications, construction and commissioning of an extensive clean and dirty sterilisation rooms and remodelling of the IVF facility.
Significant staging and coordination was undertaken not only to enable this construction work, but to facilitate the continued operation of the entire facility.
The proactive collaborative relationship developed with the client and in particular the Hospital, enabled effective control over constant changes to the work face. This manifested into an increase in overall patient volume across the project with no significant periods affecting operation
