Frankston Hospital Emergency Department, Frankston, Victoria

Waterman have been commissioned for the design and construction phase services for all engineering disciplines for new Frankston Hospital Emergency Department project.

The Emergency Department includes a new fast track, short stay, medium and high acuity areas, together with a Class N Isolation suite and Resuscitation areas. The department also included a satellite imaging area with CT Scanner and general X-ray facilities.

Site infrastructure upgrades included a new electrical substation, standby generators, medical air compressors and underground rainwater harvest storage system.

The new redevelopment connects with the existing ICU and Angiography suite which required extensive on-site decanting and building services infrastructure shutdown strategies to maintain continued operation of the department.
