Bathroom pods from Hickory Group were customised and supplied to the St John of God Midland Hospital in Bellevue, WA. Designed by Hassell Studio and built by Brookfield Multiplex for the Government of Western Australia Department of Health, the 307-bed facility is the first new hospital in Perth’s North-Eastern corridor in more than 50 years.

Brookfield Multiplex engaged Sync to build 245 custom bathroom pods for the project, which had to meet all necessary DDA and National Construction Code regulations. Featuring 31 different typologies, the fit-for-purpose pods were delivered to site complete with coved wall to floor joins for ease of cleaning and optimal hygiene.

The pods were also pre-fitted with regulation handrails, catheter hooks and points for emergency nurse call buttons. The different typologies addressed the specific requirements of various areas in the hospital such as assisted living, birthing, aged care and mental health, where both patients and staff have particular needs.
