Gold Coast University Hospital


Location:  Gold Coast, Queensland
Client:  Department of Health, Queensland
Architects: GCUH Architecture
Expected completion: 2012

About the project:

Worth $1.23 billion, the Gold Coast University Hospital will include 750-beds over a nine storey project and will open in late 2012. The hospital will be situated on Parklands Drive at Southport, enabling close ties to be forged with nearby education facilities including Griffith
and Bond Universities and the new Queensland Academy for Health Sciences.

The new facility will comprise seven main buildings, with a total floor space of around 170,000 square metres (excluding car parks).  The new purpose-built hospital will offer improved patient privacy and infection control; on-site research facilities; plus a teaching hospital for medical, nursing and allied health students.

The simple and smart solution:

A large variety of door seals were installed within the new hospital.  All were specified for a particular application covering corridor smoke doors to theatre rooms, patient wards and office facilities.  Fire Door Meeting Stile (FDMS) seals were also utilised on pairs of fire doors throughout the healthcare facility.
