Custom Stainless Steel Fabrication for Gold Coast Griffith Health Centre G40

The new Griffith Health Centre at the Gold Coast campus also know as G40 has now been open for over 12 months and is meeting the needs of academics, students and patients.  Action Sheetmetal & Roofing is very proud of the work undertaken by our team on behalf of Australian Joinery Products and Laing O’Rourke to manufacture and install the stainless steel component of the joinery package.

The Griffith Health Centre (G40) represents the university's largest investment in a single building in its 40-year history.

It reconfirms Griffith's intent to achieve the best medical outcomes for a broad and diverse health group by maximising collaboration.

The Griffith University Health Centre will be pivotal in shaping the Gold Coast campus to reinforce its identity within the dramatically emerging Gold Coast Health and Knowledge Precinct. The new Health Centre will enhance the reputation of the Griffith Medical School as one of the largest medical teaching facilities in Australia.

Leaning on 316 Stainless Steel 

Our work included stainless steel workstations for the dental and anatomy labs, customised perforated stainless steel shelving, frames and benches and custom designed framing for the reagent shelving on Level 9. The work on Level 10 also included the design of an integrated ducting unit into the benches.

Having The Capability And Willingness To Be Flexible to Meet New Design Challenges

We’re very excited about the work we did at the new Griffith Health Centre. As with many large projects, the stainless steel package that was delivered evolved significantly from what was originally tendered.  Desks that were originally designed as individual units that could be fabricated in our factory and simply installed on site became continuous runs of over 5 lineal meters that required significant site welding and polishing. Given that the joinery works are one of the last trades on site, other challenges such as limited access for longer items also resulted in changes to the design and fabrication of some items.

One challenge that was relished by the team was working with the Laing O’Rourke design managers to incorporate extraction ducting into the stainless steel anatomy benches on Level 10. Originally designed with a separate unit that sat behind the bench our team designed a sealed Colorbond unit that was integrated into the stainless bench with a perforated cover that also improved the hygiene and cleanability of the bench.

Exciting future for Gold Coast Research

We have no idea what discoveries will be made there in the future or which future medical leaders will begin their journey on a quality stainless steel bench we made here on the Gold Coast, just over two kilometres up the road from where they are installed.

This project is another example of how we are working to achieve our mission of helping to make a better Australia.
