Buildings accommodating specialised medical equipment and facilities
This two-building integrated medical complex presented a range of challenges, most notably the sourcing and installation of an array of specialised medical and education equipment.
The 13-storey laboratory block housed an inventory of high-tech equipment and facilities. The scale of the fitting-out work was considered among the largest of its kind in the world.
The adjacent 10-storey block mainly comprised teaching and administrative facilities. An extensive library was also built, along with other works included a two-storey car park and external landscaping work.
With residential developments and dormitories located close to the site, noise and dust control were vital considerations. Dragages succeeded in overcoming all these challenges and completed the project within 23 months.
