North Shore Health Hub, St Leonards
Northrop have been engaged to provide structural engineering services on the North Shore Health Hub, conveniently located opposite Sydney’s Royal North Shore Hospital and North Shore Private Hospital. To be known as the St Leonards Health and Education Precinct, the broader development could ultimately be home to around 85,000 square metres of healthcare-related real estate. The first stage of the project, which is currently in design, comprises two towers, 10 & 6 storeys respectively, along with a 5-storey basement carpark on a comprising sloped site. The design includes striking double height concrete columns, multiple transfer levels, large expansive cantilever structures, vibration analysis and a complicated lateral stability model. The design required multiple design iterations to complete the business case requiring collaborative effort with all stakeholders.
