As a LEED Silver building, this was the first project in Western Australia to be certified by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC)
Ronald McDonald Houses are intended to provide a “home away from home” environment for children and their families receiving medical treatment. This one—a new, five-storey facility—serves the Perth Children’s Hospital.
One major goal on the project was to create something that was highly progressive and sustainable. This approach was important in ensuring that every element of the building worked to promote healing, provide comfort, and encourage connection for residents who are far from home. Sustainable designs include water-efficient landscaping, high-performance glazing, timber shading devices, an indoor air quality management plan, and much more.
Our building services design complements architect Gerry Kho’s vision, resulting in stunning and unexpected spaces designed to delight residents. A vast circular light shaft creates a striking connection between the levels, highlighting the communal spaces. Whereas, the “secret garden” and the natural palette finishes have been thoughtfully curated to enhance the positive effect of nature and vegetation on the healing process.
The building includes 47 units for families, a commercial kitchen and laundry, a communal lounge, and dining and play areas. This new Ronald McDonald House provides vital accommodation for families from rural and remote areas with children receiving life-saving treatment.
