As part of a joint venture under a publicprivate partnership model, CPB Contractors (formerly Leighton Contractors) is currently designing and building Australia’s largest, most advanced hospital for the South Australian Government. Central to the design is the client’s patient centric Model of Care—focusing on the well-being aspects of patients as well as clinical and operational efficiency. Set in parklands in Adelaide’s CBD the facility will include 800 beds including 700 single rooms—with opening windows, natural light and ready access to outdoor areas and green space, and 100 same day beds. Its integrated technology system will include patient weighing beds, wireless technology, equipment tracking and intelligent information systems such as bedside entertainment and meal ordering for patients. Automated guided vehicles will move supplies around the hospital. A commercial precinct including a childcare facility for staff, cafés, gymnasium and a bank will also form part of the precinct. On completion in 2016, the new Royal Adelaide Hospital will accommodate 85,000 inpatients per year.
