Turning a campus into a world-renowned medical hub.

The challenge

Queen Elizabeth II Medical Centre, the largest medical centre in the southern hemisphere, aimed to become a world-renowned medical hub. It needed to create a foundation and direction that would support employees, organisations and the campus as a whole to adapt and thrive. Creating Communities was engaged as part of a consultant team led by Hames Sharley to produce a 50-plus year master plan to guide investment and decision making for the campus. The feedback highlighted building a thriving campus community was crucial to create a culture of collaboration and innovation, as well as fostering the needs of neighbouring precincts and the wider community.

The outcomes

Working closely with the QEIIMC Trust and stakeholders, Creating Communities helped build a set of principles for a master plan that went beyond the traditional scope of the process. We created a podcast, blog and other communications involving global thought leaders and researchers, sparking meaningful conversations in the community and positioning QEIIMC as an innovation hub.

The master plan sets out a framework for development over the next 50 years, which allows for an almost doubling of the gross floor area while reducing the footprint of carparks and roads and significantly increasing green space and tree canopy.
