AGED-CARE & HEALTHCARE PROJECTS

Royal Perth Hospital - Helipad Landing Platform

Scope: New build | Contract Value: $8M

FIRM Construction successfully delivered this highly complex project to construct a helipad landing platform and a steel footbridge on top of the Royal Perth Hospital. The project management team staged the work to ensure the immediately adjacent existing helipad remained operational at all times.

The result has been the successful construction of high-risk, high-complexity and heavy duty works above an existing operational hospital with absolute minimal disruption to the Hospital, the RAC Rescue Helicopter service, staff and patients

The new facility features 120 beds, one and two-bedroom apartment suites, private dining rooms and communal areas. A dedicated dementia wing provides residents with an extensive range of care and on-site support services i.e. hairdresser, chapel, day spa and interactive landscape spaces for residents and visitors to use.
