Greenslopes Private Hospital Redevelopment
interactive Endosuite Operating Theatre Suite
involved the redevelopment of an existing private hospital in the Brisbane
suburn of Greenslopes, to provide a new 90 bed ward block, four new Robotic
operating theatre suites, the refurbishment of the existing operating theatre
suites, a new 30 specialist medical suite centre, the development of new car
park fcailities and the decanting of many existing personal and services to
enable the existing hospital to function as normal. The project was undertaken
on a design and construct brief from architectural concept drawings.
delivery methods was adopted, with John Hollands Pty Ltd as the Builder and
team leader, and the Eaton Group engaged for the complete Electrical package
design and installation.
initial briefing Eaton’d prepared a reverse brief the John Hollands and called
for conceptual documentation to be completed. Our reverse brief outlined the
management structure and key personnel that were to but installed on site to
manage this enormous task.
infrastructure service review was then undertaken to full establish the type,
capacity and the location of the existing service. This initial stage was the
basis of the staging for the whole project.
were a total lack of existing documentation a “quality plan for the design
documentation of all electrical services” was drawn up all existing services
were physically checked and tested.
checking entailed the grid mapping and location of the High Voltage cables and
mains cables along with the existing landscape services. A system of pot holing was carried out on the
grid map for the entire landscaped and car park areas.
A large site
office/head office was established with Internet broad band internet facilities
and VPN (virtual private networks) established to our Main office. CAD programs were installed on all computers
and all our findings were documented and instantly transmitted live to our CAD draftsmen
This system enables
up to date information to be on hand and updated daily. With this complied
information we were able to set the design and construction budgets for the
project and forward al information onto the team leader in a timely manner.
This allowed the team leader to liaise with the hospital user groups and the
owners to finalise the design requirements for the project in a timely manner.
In order to
save cost we established a relationship with a local printing firm and once we
installed the compatible software we were able to produce full sized design and
construction drawing and have them delivered to site without the capital cost
of the large printing equipment.
majority of the design was finalised and with the construction preliminaries in
full swing, we were able to establish the basis at our site team and program
the construction stages and installation to maximise our labour utilisation on
site and therefore our efficiency and profit.
This system worked very well for us and we were able to deliver a
quality product on time and on budget.
brief was to build a 90 bed ward block with 4 theatres, a radiology department
and 30 suite medical centre and upgrade and relocate services to allow for
future expansion of another 90 bed ward block. The finished product had to be
functional and have the appeal of a 5 star hotel. The starting point was to
establishment of the hospital user groups requirements and then tailor making
the product to suit there needs coupled with Eaton group’s experience and
knowledge. This method was adopted for the general light and power
installation, the Nurse call system, the data copper and optical fibre backbone
cabling, main switchboard and distribution boards and the emergency backup
At all time
the design was constantly checked with the governing Australian standards and
the Health department’s requirements.

interactive Endosuite Operating Theatre Suite With Robotics Technology
Greenslopes see the launch of the latest robotics
technology and now boasts the state’s most technologically advanced operating
theatres, which use robotics technology and voice activated commands to connect
all equipment within the operating theatre and other departments in the
voice activation system surgeons can
contact the other hospital departments and can obtain immediate online access
to vital patient records such as critical diagnostic and pathology results and
view them on screen during surgery. This
new technology also allows the surgeon to dictate important patient note during
surgery. Surgeons can then provide very detailed reports to the GP’s which can
be discussed with the patient at their follow up consultations.
of the voice-activated system mean it free up the surgeons to concentrate on
the patient care and with the video link up technology the surgeons can access
colleagues to visualise different organs of their particular specialty as they
can view the operation from where ever they are.
installation of these four “smart Robotic” operating Theatres at
Greenslopes Private Hospital has allow Eaton’s to be one of the only companies
in the Australia to install and integrate the “Stryker” equipment as
a complete system coupled with our own design and connectivity to the Optical
Fibre and data backbone network throughout the hospital and the internet.
installation is not only designed to allows the opportunity for significantly
improving both procedures and turnover
time across virtually all specialities by enhancing efficiency and ergonomics
through integrated technology. In addition this system allow for teaching,
viewing and tele-conferencing of procedures.

big issue on the project as we were in charge of the High Voltage and in ground
works and mobile scaffold work, therefore a lot of time and effort was but into
the safety procedures and protocols that need to be adhered to. I am happy the
say that we had NO major incidents and only a few cuts over the duration of the
approach to this project was any essential aspect of the success for both the
finished product and the safety record. This team approach was very strong
within out own small company and coupled with the whole project team working
together as “one” for the sole peropus of delivering the client with a workable
innovative and professional upmarket product.
