Our Projects – Hospitals
Royal Brisbane & Royal Women’s Hospital
High Reliability & Redundancy
Flexible for Future Expansion
We worked on numerous projects at the hospital over a 13 year period that saw continued redevelopment and expansion, including additional beds, new operating theatres, ICU, coronary care, medical imaging and other specialist units to meet the changes in healthcare service delivery. The newest operating theatres have integrated medical imaging and diagnostic screening to enable video networking of procedures within and outside the theatre suites. RBWH has a significant ‘post-disaster’ function, requiring the engineering services to be designed to provide a high level of reliability and redundancy. With long-term involvement in the masterplanning of the site, we have allowed for building services systems throughout the hospital campus to be progressively upgraded, while facilitating future expansion. Key to this was a Central Energy Plant including chillers, thermal storage (ice), steam boilers and back-up generators, with significant expansion capacity. In delivering these projects, we have worked both independently and with various joint venture teams, as well as with a number of different architects.

Queensland Health Hospitals
Each of the sites at Mt Morgan, Baralaba, Biggenden and Winton, designed in collaboration with architects Thomson Adsett, comprised large singlestorey structures, utilising a combination of slabs on ground and suspended slabs with steel wall and roof frames. Given the similarity of the projects, the team duplicated as many of the details as possible to enable the design of the four hospitals to happen concurrently and speed up the programme.
Client: Queensland Health Architects: Thomson Adsett Services Provided: Structural & Civil Engineering
Programme planning, unsurprisingly was critical, as all four sites had existing hospitals that had to remain operational. Staged demolition and construction was instrumental in achieving this successfully. The demolition and site clearing also necessitated that all heritage and environmental issues were properly managed with the rural locations throwing up very particular challenges.

QMBA Award Winner
Victoria Point, Queensland
Meinhardt provided structural and civil engineering services for the redevelopment built by Paynter Dixon, which won the ‘Lifestyle Accommodation for Seniors’ category at the QMBA Awards. The extension to the Residential Aged Care facility at the Adventist Retirement Village at Victoria Point is a two-stage development. The design for the new building has evolved from a thorough analysis of the site, the existing buildings and infrastructure. The client’s current and future operations and service delivery requirements were a key component of the planning for the development.
Client: Paynter Dixon QLD Architects: MPS Architecture Services Provided: Structural & Civil Engineering
Stage 1 of the redevelopment involved a three-level building, which includes undercover car parking, a new kitchen, administration area, cafe and 38 residential aged care beds. It also involved refurbishment of part of the existing facility to create a new administration area, chapel and café. The new extension and refurbished area resulted in a seamless integration with the existing facility. Stage 2 involved demolition of a redundant high care building and construction of an additional 52 aged care beds.
Our Projects â€“ Hotels
Capri Hotel Brisbane, Queensland
The Capri by Fraser project converts an existing CBD office tower into a 239 room hotel, featuring a mixture of studio and suite accommodation, plus a street-level restaurant and cafĂŠ, function rooms, gym and indoor pool facilities. The change in use of the building presented a number of unique challenges for the design team to ensure current building codes are met, while providing cost-effective solutions that minimised structural and building services changes. The brand-new indoor swimming pool makes us of an existing light-well for natural light, but also required one of the existing car park floors to be partially demolished and a new suspended slab and beam arrangement constructed. Different cooling load requirements meant an additional chiller and cooling tower have been installed at roof level, and the main switchroom has been extensively modified. Lifts and life safety systems have been upgraded to achieve code compliance via a Fire Performance Engineering approach, and overall building services systems redundancy has been improved significantly to suit hotel operations.

Caboolture Signature Project
F.D.F Stanley Award for Public Architecture
The $25 million building sits in the centre of the Caboolture CBD and provides a double height library space, learning facility and art gallery catering for all sections of the community. The client required a grand design focused on delivering a contemporary and modern facility with flexible and efficient spaces and general circulation areas while at the same time, retaining a feeling of space, openness and grandeur. We managed to design a structural system which, despite varying heights and lack of common grids, eliminates any critical load transfers. By doing so the client has a more cost-effective solution and the builder a far simpler one to construct. We worked closely alongside the design team to deliver this comprehensive and co-ordinated structural package using Revit Structure. This knowledge of the latest technology has helped eliminate errors in design and on-site to keep to programme. The design features a wealth of exposed structure. The unusual dyed concrete has therefore required a high level of careful detailing to ensure a continuous high quality, smooth finish. Capability

Australian Embassy Brussels, Belgium
Designed To Australian Standards
This project consisted of a fit-out of an entire level of an existing building. The building was quite old with existing tenants on all the other levels. Careful detailing & load checks were required for the heavy loads such as: DFAT intruder resistant walls, furniture, plant loading & penetrations & store equipment loads. There were also various DSB security requirements requiring structural input & detailing. We carried out a site visit to inspect the existing building to ensure structural detailing was suitable for: the existing structure (with particular relevance to DFATâ€™s requirements), local knowledge, local conditions, readily available materials & in accordance with Australian Standards.

Our Projects – Tertiary Education
Griffith University Business School
Gold Coast, Queensland
The $38m building consists of seven storeys framed up with large span posttensioned floor slabs supported on reinforced concrete columns; and three lecture theatres with tiered seating.
Client: Abi Group (now Lend Lease) for Griffith University
The structure exists on a sloping site hence the ground floor is partly ‘slab on ground’ and partly suspended with an undercroft level beneath the suspended area.
Architects: Wilson Architects
One of the structural design challenges in this project was a 16m long transfer beam on Level 4, spanning over the main lecture theatre, where no internal columns were allowed due to architectural reasons. The beam had to support a column at midspan holding up three levels of floor structure on top. This project won the Gold Coast Master Builders Awards–Project of the Year (2015).

QUT Kelvin Grove Campus Library
Queensland Architecture Award Winner
Refurbishment and fit-out of the library originally built in the late 1970’s. It sees the merging of the existing 2-storey ‘I’ Block with ‘R’ Block to create one building. The project runs across 6-levels and 7865m2 and includes work to training and printing rooms, lounges, group study areas and individual soundproof study areas. The building has been re-designed to comply with the most up to date BCA regulations to create the most energy saving solution possible. It remained operational at all times. The air-conditioning design has been improved by providing a greater number of individually controlled perimeter zones to reduce energy usage and lower operational costs. This is further achieved by implementing a dedicated control switch (time clock controlled) to activate air conditioning in various individual rooms.
Client: QUT Architects: James Cubitt Architects and Peddle Thorp Architects Services Provided: Mechanical, Hydraulic, Fire and Electrical Engineering, including Lighting

Our Projects – Aviation
Virgin Maintenance Facility
A collaborative approach with Virgin’s engineering, technical, security and administration staff enabled the development of a design brief from scratch, which successfully met the challenge of creating a flexible maintenance facility to suit the greatest possible functional diversity. When Virgin wanted a new aircraft maintenance facility they came to Meinhardt for the right mix of Project Management expertise and technical know-how. They required a total project planning solution. An aircraft maintenance facility is more than just a big shed. There is a network of complex support infrastructure residing just below the surface. The support infrastructure and geometry is customised to the aircraft type and workshops, stores and administration facilities are customised to the client’s workflows and business requirements. A clear understanding of aircraft maintenance technology, Virgin’s workflows and aviation authority requirements was fundamental to the success of this project. Meinhardt brought all this together under a single efficient Project Management and Design structure.
