The new hospital is located on the QEII Medical site in Nedlands and will provide tertiary-level health services including inpatient and outpatient care. The hospital has 298 patient beds, 12 operating theatres, an integrated research and education facility and WA’s only paediatric trauma centre. The project is approximately 120,000 sqm, spread over 8 storeys (4 towers/3 podium levels) and 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 contributing to energy efficiency.

Upon completion of the project, Firesafe continue to maintain all the wet fire systems for the 2-year defects liability period and as required by the current Australian Standard. To satisfy this requirement, we were tasked to co-operate and co-ordinate this service with the hospital staff in a working hospital.
