About the project

The new $1.5 billion Footscray Hospital will support the increasing demand from Melbourne’s booming western suburbs, ensuring families can get the care they need close to home. With an increase of nearly 200 beds, the new hospital will treat approximately 15,000 additional patients and enable around 20,000 additional people to be seen by the emergency department each year.

Construction of the new Footscray Hospital is now underway, with the hospital expected to open in 2025.

The Task

Drafting Solutions were engaged to assist CDC Plumbing with the Modelling & Services Coordination of the Hydraulic Services for this project.

The Challenge

Meeting the accelerated concrete pour dates has been very challenging, with detailed design only been completed the day before the pour.

The Solution

The team at Drafting Solutions is in constant communication with our client’s designers and site teams to ensure the drawings are completed prior to installation on site so that things run smoothly.
