The Sunshine Coast University Hospital in Queensland is the largest, non-replacement greenfield hospital built in Australia in the past 25 years. Challenges surrounding the completion requirements of the project made it necessary for the designers and engineers to think out of the box when it came to working with a variety of stakeholders. Architectural firm HDR's recommendation to employ IFC to overcome these challenges was initially met with skepticism. The client didn't believe that an IFC-based “open” workflow could handle a project of this size and scope. However, HDR proved that combining ARCHICAD and dROFUS was the best way to deliver a project of this magnitude.
