The guiding aspiration for this bid was to enrich the lives of South Australians by creating the most advanced hospital in the Southern hemisphere.
We reinvented the Royal Adelaide Hospital to create a state-of-the-art facility that delivers the very best in patient-centred care to the community. Involving a range of firsts, the scale of this complex project cannot be overstated.
With automatically guided vehicles to transport supplies across the immense hospital grounds, internal atria, green spaces throughout, single bedrooms with en-suites and redundancy – allowing the hospital to operate off-grid in disaster mode – this is truly a cutting edge facility.
Following construction, Mint was asked by Hansen Yuncken to author and design a book celebrating the achievements of the teams involved in creating this outstanding health facility.
