Médipôle Hospital in Noumea

The new hospital "Médipôle" in Noumea, New Caledonia will gather in a unique site the medical activities of the four existing facilities of the Territorial Hospital that have become obsolete. It will bring together various units: the new hospital, the Pasteur Institute of New Caledonia, the Association for the treatment of renal insufficiency (ATIR), a radiotherapy center, the laboratory hospital and a Care Center and Rehab (CSSR). This will be the first public building in New Caledonia to be certified High Environmental Quality with particular regard to the consumption of energy (electricity, air conditioning, building orientation) and green roofing of outdoor spaces.

The new hospital will be able to handle 60,000 emergency visits a year, 300,000 consultations and 40,000 hospitalisations, requesting additional 400 staff, including 300 doctors with a special effort in training.
The project cost is 369 million Euros and the official opening is scheduled for 2016.

The Siplast waterproofing systems fulfilled the project's specifications of High Environmental Quality standard and were chosen for the flat roofs of the various buildings:
- double layer SBS bitumen adhesive system with Adepar JS and Paradiene 30.1 GS products,
- SBS bitumen torched double layer system Paradiene JSR4 and Paradiene BDS,
- green roofing system with Preflex and Graviflex membranes for garden roofs.

The waterproofer company Socalet staff has been accompanied by a Siplast specialist on site to provide the initial installation.
