Thomas Embling Secure Forensic Mental Health  Institution  – Secure Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit  (SPICU) & Infill Works

This project involved increasing the capacity and upgrading the amenities of the Thomas Embling Hospital, which is a high security forensic mental health facility located in Fairfield, Melbourne. Infill Works involved alterations and additions to the existing Argyle, Atherton, Bass and Canning clinical units within the Thomas Embling Hospital.

Argyle and Atherton were acute units, however all units required strict compliance with the entry and exit of tools and materials and separation between construction workers and staff, including QA on internal and external hoardings.

The scope of works included ten additional beds, built via modular construction off-site and craned in, as well as extensions to dining rooms, lounge rooms, kitchens, store rooms, bathrooms, laundries and visitor/interview rooms.
