Specialist Rehabilitation and Ambulatory Care Centre

Concept and Feasibility Study

Project Information

Destravis was engaged by Metro North Hospital and Health Service (MNHHS) to develop a high level concept with feasibility investigations for a combined Specialist Rehabilitation and Ambulatory Care Centre project being considered to expand the MNHHS services at Herston.

Destravis developed a Strategic Functional Brief for the concept facility and a proposed Schedule of Accommodation.  

The feasibility specifically addressed the project as a combined facility. This means the facility benefits from the efficiency of sharing support areas (such as back of house and front of house) and clinical support areas (such as satellite pharmacy, pathology and medical imaging).

The feasibility report outlined items including quality of construction, construction costs and floor areas, risks, feasibility, value for money, and cash flow.

The feasibility was prepared as a commercial Build, Own, Maintain and Transfer (BOMT) scheme. This method allows for private enterprise to build, own and maintain the facilities underpinned by a commercial lease arrangement with MNHHS.

In summary, the delivery of the facility showed positive potential to be commercially viable to private enterprise while retaining competitive leasing costs for MNHHS.

Now incorporated into the Herston Quarter Precinct, the Specialist Rehabilitation and Ambulatory Care Centre (SRACC) is a great example of Destravis ability to define the clinical needs of a project and develop a feasible approach for the procurement and delivery of that facility to ensure, that even in a fiscally challenged environment, solutions can be found.
