Hedland Health Campus
Built to withstand cyclones and express the spirit of the Pilbara, the new Hedland Health Campus combines simplicity of design and materials with sophisticated approaches to combine human needs with medical technology.
We were contracted to construct a range of inpatient and outpatient facilities including an operating suite containing two operating theatres; dedicated ward areas for medical/surgical, obstetrics and paediatrics as well as a high dependency unit; ambulatory care wing including renal dialysis and consultation facilities for primary health and mental health services; an emergency department medical imaging and pathology; and support services buildings.
The building replaced the existing health campus in Port Hedland and is the central healthcare hub for the Pilbara Gascoyne Health Region.
A close relationship existed with the appointed architects to deliver a functional and exciting building design. The building was designed to respond to the cultural values of the local Aboriginal community and extreme climatic conditions of the region.
The Hedland Health Campus won the Master Builders Association Excellence in Construction Award -Best Overall North West Commercial Building and Best Steel Building in 2011. We also won the Australian Institute of Business Professional Excellence in Building Award for the project.
