Glenside Hospital

A seamless transition for major health project

The South Australian Government was planning a new $130 million mental health facility at Glenside Hospital. Before construction could begin, transitional works needed to be carried out on existing buildings where clinical services would be relocated. The result for the client was 5000 square metres of clinical space and consultation rooms delivered on time.

A secure site

To make sure patient security wasn’t compromised during the refurbishment, SHAPE carried out regular security checks and erected temporary fencing and lockable spring-loaded gates. As managing contractor, SHAPE engaged suppliers and subcontractors as cost-effectively as possible, and worked with the architect to source cheaper materials. Thanks to SHAPE’s cost-saving techniques, the client saved $600,000 on the original estimate for the project.


"SHAPE did a fantastic job on a challenging project. They secured significant cost savings and continually engaged with our staff to make sure they were satisfied with the end result.”
