About This Project

LOCATION: Butterfield Street, Herston Queensland

 

TYPE OF PROJECT: Government, Hospital

 

YEAR(S): 2010

 

CLIENT: Hutchinson Builders

 

This project involved the refurbishment and demolition of the Health and Sciences Building at RBH, a facility which was spread over 11 floors of the complex. Such a comprehensive reconfiguration of the structure meant that over 80 per cent of the existing facades would have to be levelled and replaced, a huge operation.

 

Cogent Scaffolding and Hutchinson Builders worked in tandem to devise a cost-effective plan for a scaffolding skeleton which would safely support the demolition and re-build through each phase of the process. For the comfort and safety of hospital staff, patients and patrons, the Cogent team were also able to fit a special containment unit to control any excess dust created in the demolition process.

 

As the scaffolding needed to be in place before any other work could progress, this was a job that required co-operation across many trades – no problem for an outfit as professional and well-respected in the construction industry as Cogent Scaffolding.
