The LEONGATHA RESIDENTIAL AGED CARE project involved the construction of a completely new Hospital on the same site as the existing hospital while it remained operational. The Residential Aged Care Facility was completed earlier as Stage 1. The whole site services infrastructure for the Hospital including electricity, telecommunications, sewer, water, fire and gas were totally replaced. Apart from the RAC the new facility comprised Inpatient and Theatres, Primary Health, Hotel Services, Urgent Care, Medical Imaging, Pathology and Administration, ESD initiatives included rainwater harvesting for toilet flushing and irrigation, solar preheat for domestic hot water, VRF air-conditioning, air to air heat recovery on all exhaust/supply air systems and a full BMS system energy efficiency and system management.
