Prince Charles Hospital
ADCO was engaged by Queensland Health to design and construct the $26 million Adolescent Extended Treatment Facility (AETF) at Prince Charles Hospital. Renamed ‘Jacaranda Place’ by QLD Premier Annastasia Palaszczuk, the facility offers a 12-bed residential unit, a 20-place day program and integrated vocational and training programs.
All features have been meticulously configured and incorporated into the modern design to deliver the best possible healing environment for Jacaranda Place’s residents.
SAN Parkway Clinic comprises of three individual buildings interconnected by way of an impressive central atrium and elevated walkways. The buildings are a combination of three and four storeys and incorporate a high level of contemporary design aesthetic and the latest in environmental sustainability.
The clinic offers 248 car spaces across three levels of underground parking. SAN Parkway Clinic’s co-location with Sydney Adventist Hospital together with the architectural excellence of the design has ensured that this facility is a notable address among medical and health professionals.
ADCO’s construction of St Vincent’s Private Hospital, Werribee, and the adjacent 80-bed aged care facility brought a world-class, integrated health precinct to Victoria.
The complex project included a day procedure centre, four operating theatres (one theatre cath lab), 32 acute medical/surgical/rehabilitation beds, 16 maternity birth suites and nursery, support areas, commercial kitchen, chapel, car parking, landscape and civil works.
A constructive approach to problem solving was at the heart of this project for Ramsay Health Care. The latest stage of the campus masterplan was highly complicated with the new renal unit and paediatric ward being built on top of the functioning hospital. Rising to the challenge, our WA team produced a high-quality clinical finish, fully compliant with local authority regulatory inspections prior to handover.
Built for Health Infrastructure NSW, this $50 million, four-storey hospital will provide medical, mental health, maternity, paediatric and preoperative care for the local community. New facilities include wards, operating theatres, an emergency department, ambulance entry, car parking and improved pedestrian links across the site.
ADCO has a long-standing relationship with Health Infrastructure and relished the opportunity to mobilise a team to Bowral. Additionally, we have welcomed multiple employees to the ADCO family from the Bowral & District area for this and future projects, and have also successfully developed relationships with subcontractors from the community — allowing us to actively contribute to the local economy.
This high-profile project emphasises ADCO’s innovative approach and outstanding reputation in health and government sectors in both NSW and nationally.
The five-storey design integrates mental health, drug and alcohol services, multicultural, rehabilitation, aged care services and more. The scope of work also included a seven-storey car park accommodating 475 vehicles.
From inception to completion, BIM technology was used throughout to represent, integrate and fulfill the exacting design and construct delivery model and schedule.
ADCO was selected to complete two stages of the redevelopment at the Royal Rehabilitation Centre in Ryde. The centre is a specialist rehabilitation provider focusing on care for people who have experienced injury or illness, resulting in temporary or permanent disability such as stroke, brain injury, burns, amputation and spinal cord injury.
ADCO managed the design and approval process from early in the concept stage. Working collaboratively with Royal Rehab's consultants, staff and end-user groups, our dedicated in-house design and services managers incorporated the most innovative and cost-effective solutions, resulting in completion of the project six weeks ahead of schedule.
The complex includes a new 96-bed outpatient clinic, hydrotherapy pool and radiology suite, community medical centre, cafe and car parking. A recreation circle features basketball and tennis courts, a community hall, 100-person function centre and a 50-place childcare centre.
ADCO completed a highly complex brownfield health development for Cabrini at their Malvern hospital. The $25 million project was delivered on the second floor of the existing hospital, creating a three-level building.
The development provided new services, including two new cardiac catheterisation laboratories equipped with the most sophisticated x-ray imaging systems, a new mother and baby centre which is located on the same floor as Cabrini’s maternity service and special care nursery, and a new haematology and oncology centre – a grouping of specialists in the treatment of blood disorders and cancer. Residing specialists include haematologists, oncologists, radiotherapists, a palliative care specialist, registrars and allied healthcare professionals.
The Osborne Park Hospital Rehabilitation & Neonatal Nursery project includes the new Level 2A neonatal nursery, maternity assessment unit and 16-bed rehabilitation unit. The enhanced obstetric services, which includes the nursery and maternity unit, will enable local mothers with low-to-moderate risk pregnancies to give birth closer to where they live.
The new 16-bed rehabilitation unit will comprise of six existing stroke beds, as well as 10 additional new beds, and specialise in caring for patients aged over 65 years. Additionally, services will include a new central therapy hub, new therapy garden and associated refurbishment works.
Osborne Park Hospital is the first of its kind for Perth’s northern suburbs. The facility will be home to a centralised therapy hub, providing inpatient and outpatient services to thousands of patients requiring rehabilitation in a contemporary environment. With ADCO’s extensive experience completing projects in and around live and operational environments, we were selected as the Builder of Choice. The project is due for completion in April 2021.
The $85 million redevelopment of Pindara Private Hospital by our Gold Coast team is stand-out example of ADCO's proficiency in the health sector. All stages were completed ahead of time, and importantly without disruption to existing hospital operations.
After this resounding success, Ramsay Health Care engaged ADCO to complete the addition of the neurosurgery ward at the hospital, as well as completing major brownfield works at Ramsay’s North West Private Hospital.
With trust built over decades, ADCO has developed a strong repeat-business client base that includes federal and state government entities as well as leading Australian and international corporations.
We are delighted ADCO has become our partner in development and construction over the past decade, being a critical partner in the successful delivery of innovative buildings for Bond University.
Professor Tim Brailsford, Bond University
ADCO has an excellent standard of work and superior management skills. They have maintained excellent relationships with all stakeholders and have demonstrated a high standard of overall performance throughout. I would definitely recommend ADCO for future projects.

ADCO's point of difference is that they’re not contractually motivated—that is important. ADCO is solutions-focused and they communicate issues very well. There is no trickery; ADCO is totally upfront and honest. If we have a problem, it is a collective problem and we find a solution together.
