A New Children's Hospital

By | Copyright Year:2013 | ISBN-13: 9780170229531

Planning and designing a new hospital for children is a huge undertaking. When it was decided to build a new Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne, lots of different people were involved in the process, including patients, families, staff and expects in design, architecture, engineering and construction.

The results were outstanding, and the new Royal Children's Hospital is a truly sustainable building that provides a friendly and welcoming environment for all who enter its doors. As one student said, 'If I ever have to go to hospital, I want to go there!'
