Lamson project team has the capabilities to make logistical changes in real-time to accommodate major changes in the kitchen design of the Acute Services Building
The new Royal North Shore Hospital was a redevelopment project built under a PPP agreement (Private-, Public-, Partnership)with NSW government.
Project stage one included Acute Services Building with loading dock, linen department, kitchen and connection to the Douglas
Building via the bridge. This stage included two major design changes with impact on the AGV design. First change was
additional wards on level 9 requiring deliveries. Second change was a complete redesign of the kitchen area. This all had impact on
layout and performance of the system which had to be reviewed.
In stage two, the building will be to connected to Clinical Services Building via a tunnel. This required additional layout changes in
ASB to accommodate the necessary overall performance of the system. The project team had therefore made best possible
assumptions in stage one to cater for later stage.
Royal North Shore Hospital
Lamson project team has the capabilities to make logistical changes in real-time to accommodate major changes in the kitchen design of the Acute Services Building. It included for instance substantial traffic rerouting to facilitate the above variation.
With the project starting with the Clinical Services Building our contractual obligations extended to working with 3rd party builders to enable smooth installation of the AGV system in the hospital precinct.
Lamson is the leader of Material Handling logistics in Hospitals and provides ongoing in-house training for our support staff. This ensures seamless implementation of comprehensive systems similar to the Royal North Shore AGV project.
This was the first AGV project in an Australian Hospital and it was successfully implemented to our client’s satisfaction
