A key part of the Seismic Risk Management Plan (SRMP) is the demolition of the Block C building which currently houses the Renal department. To enable this, a new, purpose built Renal facility will be built on David Street. The new building is a single storey, timber building of approximately 800m2 and will have a distinctly non-clinical feel in comparison to the existing department. The building will target Net Zero Energy Certification, meaning that the total energy use over a year will be neutral. This will be achieved by reducing the energy consumption and utilising roof mounted solar panels to generate energy. A pedestrian connection will link the Renal Unit to the main Base Hospital campus.
