Project Details

Brisbane Private Hospital is the city’s leading inner city hospital treating over 20,000 patients each year. The 154 bed private hospital is located in Brisbane’s busiest medical precinct, Wickham Terrace, in the heart of the CBD. The Hospital offers a combination of specialist medical and surgical services, with the theatre complex performing over 15,000 procedures each year.

Brisbane Private Hospital had leaks in the roof joints that affected the medical suites below. Leaking roofs are a serious issue in themselves but the seriousness is compounded in a medical setting, with a high risk of infection due to mould.



To rectify the issue, Brisbane Private Hospital sought a solution from Ben Calcutt Waterproofing (Contractor) and Bayset. A two layer Torch On waterproofing system from Soprema was applied to ensure the roof would be watertight for the next 20 years.


Result & Testimonial

The Soprema Torch On was applied so to achieve a very pleasing aesthetic result as well as a high quality waterproofing result. Brisbane Private Hospital is in discussions with the contractor and Bayset for the future waterproofing of the other hospitals roofs.
