Ausco Modular supplied a total of 84 modular units to Canberra Hospital, helping save build time and allowing patients and staff to occupy the new facilities well ahead of schedule.

Working with fitout and refurbishment specialists SHAPE Group, Ausco Modular supplied modules covering 5000 square metres to accommodate an array of new facilities in Building 15 including x-ray rooms, office space and meeting rooms, reception and waiting area, consultation rooms, rehabilitation gymnasium, operating theatre and recovery rooms, ICU and commercial kitchen.  

Canberra Hospital is one of the many healthcare projects that have benefitted from Ausco Modular’s made-to-measure modular buildings. Ausco Modular building solutions are increasingly being preferred by healthcare providers for consistently delivering reductions in building times, on-site safety risks, disruptions to patients and local residents, and on-site waste and dust generation.

Ausco Modular General Manager - Modular Sale, Ben Knight explains that the rapid build times of modular construction methods allow health providers to get their operations off the ground faster and deliver better medical services.

According to Mr Knight, time saving is a major priority for their clients, as it helps them reduce waiting times for patients and enable greater room availability. Faster construction and off-site building also mean less traffic entering and exiting sites, minimising inconvenience to neighbouring businesses and residents.

Ausco’s modular buildings deliver multiple benefits to a project. Since the buildings are constructed off-site in factory-controlled settings, they are not affected by weather conditions, and will generate substantially smaller amounts of on-site dust and waste, minimising impacts on building times, existing facilities and patients.

Qualified tradespeople are employed by Ausco to work on the buildings, and all factories that work with Ausco have achieved ISO9001, ISO14001 and AS 4801 accreditations through independent industry regulators for quality, environmental management and safety.

Unlike outdated demountable buildings, Ausco’s modular buildings are made from quality materials, are aesthetically pleasing and can be custom-made to suit all needs.

Ausco Modular delivers a full turnkey service across Australia, leveraging its extensive countrywide network as well as longstanding history of providing quality made-to-order modular buildings for the healthcare industry.
