Architects: Silver Thomas Hanley, Hames Sharley and HASSELLDownload PDF
As Western Australia’s flagship health facility, the Fiona Stanley Hospital is the largest building project ever undertaken for the Western Australian Government. The hospital is a complex of buildings that combine to form the hospital campus. This A$2 billion project was designed by the Fiona Stanley Design Collaboration - a joint venture between the local offices of three architectural practices: Silver Thomas Hanley, Hames Sharley and HASSELL.
The hospital covers 150,000sqm of floor space over 5 main buildings and boasts 16 theatres, 29 imaging rooms and 783 beds including rehabilitation beds. Set to be one of the leading hospitals in Perth the entire hospital has been equipped with sophisticated technology enhacing the experience for both patients and staff. The hospital will also feature over 3600 parking bays and five hectares of natural bushland, landscaped parks, courtyards and plazas.
As one of Australia’s leading Bathroom and Kitchen product suppliers, GWA Bathrooms and Kitchens were approached to supply a diverse range of innovative products suitable for use in a hospital environment. GWA Bathrooms and Kitchens supplied $1.6 million of Hansa product for the project. This included 1500 Tempra Thermostatic Mixing Valves and Medica Prado product. The design team insisted on specifying the Tempra valve because of its superior design and performance and to help deliver the project’s leading technology requirements.
Amongst the Medica Prado Basin Mixer’s advanced features is an adjustable flow rate and temperature limiter that provides excellent control and protection against scalding.
All Hansa products installed in this project have accommodated the individual needs of this healthcare facility with quality, reliability and functionality.
The hospital was completed in 2014.
