Design and Construct.
Health Infrastructure provided concept plans for the new ambulance station for Bathurst NSW for contractor design completion as part of the overall Regional Ambulance Infrastructure Reconfiguration programme. The project was to be designed to include multiple facilities for different sections of Ambulance NSW within the one building. The new building was to house the Regional Zone management office, ambulance facilities for active calls and support of paramedics, fleet servicing facilities, training staff office, training rooms and conference facilities in total floor area of just over 1600m2.
Throughout the completion of the project Hines looked at the end users requirements and wherever possible made suggestions and changes to increase the ease of use and minimising the construction cost, ongoing costs and maintenance for Ambulance NSW.
Hines stimulated innovations on this project included the decision to maintain the contaminated soil on site under a capping layer and change the foundation system to screw piles, this saved the client significant cost and risk.
The building when completed was held in very high regard with Health Infrastructure and was said to be the best over design and build quality of all the Ambulance Stations thought the RAIR project release and the station that all future stations would be measured against.
