The $1.8 billion Sunshine Coast Public University Hospital project is a State Government initiative to address the growing health service needs of the Sunshine Coast community. The hospital opened with approximately 450 beds in 2016 and the remaining capacity is expected to be commissioned by 2020/21, which will see all 738 beds used. The hospital has also been planned to allow further expansion of up to a total of 900 beds.
The new tertiary facility is being delivered through a public private partnership (PPP) contract with Exemplar Health, a consortium comprising Lend Lease, Siemens and Capella Capital, with partner Spotless Facilities Services. This consortium will design, build and finance the public hospital as well as maintain it for 25 years.
Cirlock was contacted by Lend Lease to provide the Cirlock permanently mounted Lockout System. This involved the purchase of a number of key items for use on the hospital project, including 12 pole mounting sets to suit the Schneider NS250
