Project progress

Watch the following video for a wrap up of the latest demolition works.

Renewal SA is overseeing the planning and physical redevelopment of the former Royal Adelaide Hospital site to create the Lot Fourteen innovation and ideas neighbourhood. This includes planning, demolition of obsolete buildings on the Lot Fourteen site, the refurbishment of heritage and historic buildings, landscaping, civil works and construction.

Renewal SA is targeting a 6-Star Green Star Communities Certification and is the first registered WELL Communities Pilot project in Australia, demonstrating that the project is leading the way in the development of communities that embody sustainability and a commitment to wellbeing.

As part of that commitment, all surplus equipment and various waste streams are being recycled. For example, surplus equipment and medical supplies which were not needed for the new Royal Adelaide Hospital were distributed to hospitals and other healthcare organisations in developing countries by Rotary Australia World Community Service.

Other examples of recycling include:

  • Bricks and concrete recycled for use as road surface
  • Ferrous metals (those that contain iron) in components such as steel beams, wall frames, concrete reinforcing, ducting, tanks and roof sheeting were separated to be melted down and recast as new products
  • Non-ferrous materials (made from metals that do not contain iron including aluminium, copper, lead, zinc tin, gold and silver)
  • Green waste recycled as mulch.

It is expected that in excess of 100,000 tonnes of material will be recycled by the time the hospital demolition program is complete.
