ST LUKE’S HOSPITAL EXTENSION 2021-04-01T10:24:28+11:00


Modscape worked closely with Calvary Health Care and construction company Erilyan to develop additional patient rooms for St Luke’s Hospital in Launceston, Tasmania.

St Luke’s Hospital chose a modular solution to enable it to quickly meet its increasing accommodation demands. Minimal time spent on-site meant less disruption to the day-to-day running of the hospital. The construction was completed in eight weeks, with the modules being installed in one day, and after just a further six weeks on-site, the rooms were ready for new patients.

The five-bed extension consists of four modules that connect to the existing hospital facility. Space is utilised by sitting the modules atop a ground-floor services area.

Each ward room is designed for single occupancy and includes an en suite, modern furnishings and a bulkhead air-conditioning system that enables room temperatures to be individually adjusted to suit each patient’s comfort.
