New Blacktown Hospital project
Laing O’Rourke has been awarded a $145 million contract for the new Clinical Services Building at the Blacktown Mount Druitt Hospital (BMDH) Blacktown campus in Sydney’s west.
NSW Health Minister, The Hon Jillian Skinner MP described the project as the centrepiece of the NSW Government’s $324 million BMDH Expansion Project Stage 1.
Laing O'Rourke CEO David Stewart said "Laing O'Rourke is proud to be delivering yet another major health infrastructure project in Western Sydney."
“In 2012 we completed the Nepean Hospital expansion project and are excited to de delivering another major package of health works in the region,” Mr Stewart said.
"In Australia, and around the world, we have a long track-record of working with Governments and health care providers to deliver first-class social infrastructure facilities."
Laing O’Rourke will deliver the design and construction of a new five-storey clinical services building (plus two levels underground), adjacent to the existing Blacktown main hospital building, and linked by a fully enclosed “hospital street”
The building will provide comprehensive care centres for cancer, cardiac, respiratory and aged care services in open plan purpose-built facilities.
It will connect into the existing hospital via upper level links and the wards will feature single and two-bed rooms with en-suites.
"As Principal Contractor, we will also be responsible for the logistics management of two other nearby projects, part of the local area health service’s wider $324 million expansion plan,” Mr Stewart said.
Work will begin on-site in August and be completed during 2015.
