Ausco was delighted to work with Lendlease on the delivery of a 100-place childcare centre, located on Level 7 of the main multi-deck carpark for the new Sunshine Coast University Hospital

This project came with several key challenges:

• a requirement to work alongside other trades on-site;
• meeting working at height safety regulations; providing a seamless blend between the existing façade and the design of the child care centre;
• remaining flexible with construction timelines.

The flexibility of the modular product meant Ausco was well placed to provide the right services for this unique project, which included a full turn-key installation.

As with all of Ausco’s products, the child care centre was built off-site which minimised any impact on the construction site. The building structure, design and appearance blended well with existing facades and is equal in quality to an in-situ version.

The construction process took only eight weeks and was cost-effective and efficient for the client.

The service connections in the modular building were designed to link seamlessly with the carpark services and positioned for easy access to maintenance points.
The new Sunshine Coast University Hospital will open in April 2017and will revolutionise healthcare in the region.

Modular construction was an ideal solution to a multi-storey car park installation
