The Southport Health Precinct was established to provide the community with a “one stop” centre for the complete health and community service in the heart of Southport. The brief was to improve community access and service coordination for a range of health services which were previously spread in a wide location across the Gold Coast. Engaged on a Design and Construct basis, Quadric transformed the building previously vacated by Griffith University into a modern patient-based facility capable of meeting the needs of the rapidly growing Gold Coast Region and assisting with the urban renewal of the area left vacant by the removal of the Gold Coast Hospital.
Services include Oral Health, Renal Dialysis, Children’s Health, Child Mental Health, Alcohol and Drug Services, Sexual Health and Transition Care, along with administrative and health functions including Public Health services. The build was progressively delivered allowing the facility to have a staged opening, bringing customer operations on board as early as possible. Upgrading of base building services to meet Queensland Health requirements was a key deliverable, along with meeting infectious control standards to clinical areas. Specialist services for each clinical space were integrated with the extensive buildwork. Bespoke joinery suiting operational spaces was design, developed, and built in-house by the Quadric Joinery division. Maintaining end user operations whilst managing the diverse range of services required for such as facility was a key focus of the Quadric team.
A big thank you to the entire project team for working with us on what has been a very challenging but successful build.
