Prince Charles Hospital Paediatric Centre


This $34 million three-stage project for the Prince Charles Hospital in Brisbane encompasses a new paediatric emergency department including 12 new treatment spaces, 20 inpatient beds and outpatient clinics. The emergency department was expanded to cater for the growing health needs of the area.

The new air conditioning system uses modern VRF (Variable Refrigeration Volume) equipment, reducing energy costs. The library and medical officers’ common room was designed with HRVs (heat recovery ventilators) to reduce air conditioning capacity and provide energy efficient operation. A flexible isolation ward was also designed to allow the space to be used as a general ward when the high-energy-usage isolation function is not required.
