The Queensland Children’s Hospital combines the specialised paediatric health services, now provided by the Royal Children’s Hospital and the Mater Children’s Hospital, in a new state-of-the-art facility at South Brisbane.

Floth was appointed Mechanical, Electrical, Hydraulic, & Fire Consultants on the Queensland Children’s Hospital Energy Plant. The 12 level hospital has more than 100,000sqm of floor area, with some areas naturally ventilated. The central energy plant provides the power, heating, cooling, and steam requirements of the hospital and associated buildings.

Specifically, the central energy plant outputs:

  • Tri-Generation Plant: 4.8MW
  • Standby Power Plant: Up to 12MW
  • Chilled Water Plant: Up to 20MW
  • Heating Hot Water: Up to 5.5MW
  • Steam: Up to 2000kg/hr

Floth fully designed and documented the Energy Plant using the latest 3D software.

For their work on this project, Floth Sustainable Building Consultants beat an international field of companies to take out the TSI International Award for BEST 3D Model of the Year 2011 at the Las Vegas User Convention.

Floth Sustainable Building Consultants were compared alongside some of the best engineering design consultants and contractors in the world, and have been identified as a leader in the field.

Floth continued to work closely with the Queensland Children’s Hospital project team during the construction phase of the project, to ensure the central energy plant delivered to the fullest of its design potential.
