Project: Prince Charles Hospital – Adolescent Extended Treatment Centre
Client: ADCO Constructions
Value: $27 million
Construction of Children’s Health Queensland’s new statewide adolescent mental health extended treatment centre, the first of its kind in Australia, is progressing well and on track to open in early 2020. The roof of the $27 million Adolescent Extended Treatment Centre, located on the campus of The Prince Charles Hospital campus at Chermside in Brisbane, is now complete and the focus of construction activity will now turn to internal fit out.
The purpose-built centre will have 12 residential beds alongside a 10-place day program delivered in partnership with the Department of Education. In line with Children’s Health Queensland’s commitment to family-centred care, the centre also includes two family accommodation units, so families and carers can stay at the centre and be involved in the care of their child.
