The original Mater Misericordiae Public Hospital in Brisbane, now known as the Whitty Building at Mater Hill, has returned to a clinical role thanks to a $30 million redevelopment.
Mater Health Services and the University of Queensland partnered in an Alliance Agreement to transform the heritage-listed building into a modern teaching facility. With new education and teaching spaces, administrative offices and student amenities, the former hospital has transformed to a clinical teaching environment delivering customised UQ/Mater nursing and midwifery programs.
Air Design MINItherm Air Handling Units were chosen for their advanced EC technology. Furthermore, Fantech’s reliability and on-time delivery was paramount as the hospital remained in operation for the duration of the project.
