When the Sunshine Coast University Hospital (SCUH) opened in April 2017 it revolutionised healthcare on the Sunshine Coast. SCUH is supported by highly trained specialist staff, who safely care for patients with complex or life-threatening conditions.

This means about 10,000 patients each year don’t have to travel to Brisbane for complex treatment. The hospital opened with about 450 beds, with ability to grow to more than 738 beds and it can be further expanded to 900 beds beyond 2021 if needed.

Southland Filtration worked with Aurecon and Lend Lease, from detailed design conception through to assisting the project hydraulics contractor during the course of the project.

Duplex custom skid mounted packages for filtering the incoming mains water to the overall site to below 30 microns, were designed and supplied.  This allows for maximum instantaneous peak flow rates and redundancy during preventative maintenance programs.  Plus, its modular design allows for future expansion if required.
