The AUSTIN HOSPITAL THEATRES project involved the design of 4 new Operating Theatres at the existing Austin Repatriation site in West Heidelberg. The theatres were designed for Orthopaedic Surgery and incorporated state of the art laminar flow hoods and sophisticated audio visual technology to assist the surgeons and also train students on and remote from site. The theatres, while totally new, were constructed within the confines of the existing theatre building which provided complications in the design process. Included as part of the project was a new CSSD and upgrade of the existing HVAC system within the Ward area, whilst the facility remained operational.
