The scale of new Royal Adelaide Hospital cannot be underemphasised: the largest hospital ever undertaken in Australia, and the single largest infrastructure project undertaken in South Australia’s history.
Servicing the people of Adelaide, it is Australia’s most advanced and world-class hospital, incorporating the requirements of medical professionals and innovations from the best international facilities.
The logistics of this project was our biggest challenge. It is the largest project undertaken by Flowtech National and involved the development and coordination of a FIFO arrangement. At the projects peak Flowtech managed and coordinated a team of 52 technicians from around Australia. Due to Flowtech National’s ability to service customers across Australia, we were able to supply high quality commissioning labour from our national labour pool and assign them to this project until completion.
We also worked very closely with the mechanical contractor and the builder to coordinate and deliver on a tight program. We worked in collaboration with other subcontractors to navigate the team through complex logistical commissioning issues through to successful completion
