Expanding healthcare facilities to cater for Melbourne’s growing South-East community.

St John of God Hospital in Berwick, forms part of a major health care precinct serving the Casey-Cardinia region in Melbourne’s South East, sitting proud near Casey Public Hospital and the Casey Specialist Medical Centre.

The new and improved St John of God Hospital is a welcome addition to one of Australia’s fastest growing communities, expanding more than 18,000 residents a year.

Designed by experienced healthcare Architects; Silver Thomas Hanley, and built by Hansen Yuncken, the 30,000m² hospital includes over 200 beds, 8 operating theatres, maternity ward with 6 birthing suites, a dedicated cardiac unit, 350 basement car parks, and the first Intensive Care Unit for the region.

Site contractors; Expoconti selected Studco Building Systems as their supplier of choice for wall and ceiling systems, for their ability to meet the project requirements.

Studco’s technical team assisted Expoconti with engineering advice and worked collaboratively to ensure the steel framing would support the stunning, yet heavy, design elements found in the hospital’s reception area, such as the eye-catching feature light that hangs from the ceiling above.

The HEDA Tough Wall System, designed for extreme walls and fully engineered to meet BCA requirements and Australian Standards, was the perfect solution for the entrance area, as it was able to hold the timber panelling on the 10-metre-high reception walls.
