Sydney Southwest Hospital Redevelopment
Sydney Southwest Private Hospital is an 87-bed facility that has provided high-quality care for more than 20 years.
The redevelopment project involves significant extension and refurbishment of the existing Hospital. New female change rooms and CSSD, 24 single bed ward rooms (each with own ensuite) and the option for an additional 20 single bed ward rooms (each with own ensuite), plus medical consulting suites. A new courtyard is also planned, along with offices, storage and support rooms.
Our client engaged Northrop to provide a sustainability framework, integrating core principles of Green Star as a benchmark for the redevelopment. It would also be tailored to the unique complexities of the development to ensure an ESD rating equivalent to a 4 Star Green Star rating.
Our primary challenge was ensuring that a flexible approach was considered that would allow for further expansion in the future.
Northrop successfully collaborated with other engineering consultants to realise the overall ESD strategy and meet the desired sustainability targets.
