The project objectives included:
- Repair to the plant room slab floor;
- Relocation and re-instalment of the water softener equipment; and
- Complete works at 17m above one of Brisbane’s critical transport zones, and in the heart of an operating hospital.
The slab replacement zone was directly above a busy Brisbane Busway tunnel entry and approximately 11m above the ground on the scaffold side and 17m above the tunnel roadside.
The Plant Room is three storeys above ground level within the linkway between two major wings of the hospital, and along-side several offices, Patient consultation areas, and operating theatres and an inpatient ward on adjoining leves.
Noisy and disruptive works such as drilling and jack-hammering was to be conducted outside operating theatre hours and take into consideration the above and neighbouring Inpatient wards.
Innovative methodology was used to suspend the formwork from the existing structural steel beams to replace sections of badly damaged plant room suspended slab, some 17m in the air.
The challenging and operationally sensitive job was completed by the Woollam team more than two weeks ahead of schedule.
Repair work of this nature is messy and intricate. The
only way to end with a good result is with a good team
managing it and good trades all cooperating. Well done.
