Hospital redevelopment tracks to plan with Aconex

Project name: Lyell McEwin Hospital | Industry: Health & EducationProject size: US$23 million | Location: Adelaide, Australia

Lyell McEwin Hospital provides a comprehensive range of specialist and diagnostic treatment services to approximately 196,000 people. The redevelopment included the complete replacement of over 34,000 square meters of medical facilities, which was carried out over two stages within a fully operational hospital facility. The project also involved construction of new mental health, linear accelerator and radiotherapy facilities; refurbishment of existing buildings; and the upgrade of building infrastructure in 20 separate stages of work.

Challenges

  • Thousands of documents and correspondence items created and shared between project team members.

Solutions

  • Enhanced control of information flow resulted in effective management of all drawings and documents.
  • Document creation, transmission and printing were reduced to a few minutes.
  • Quality assurance was improved for each phase of the project.
