Multiplex has been appointed as the ECI Contractor to deliver the design and construction of the Westmead Hospital Central Acute Services Building (CASB) Main Works. The project contains three main components of the broader Westmead Redevelopment, which will be the largest capital health project for the NSW Government in 10 years.
Central Acute Services Building
The centerpiece of the project is the 12-storey CASB, offering two new emergency departments, state-of-the-art operating theatres, acute medical imaging services, surgical impatient units, a National Infectious Diseases Unit, helipad and more, over a 12,000m2 footprint. Providing acres of clinical space to the Westmead Campus, the CASB will not only reinforce Westmead as the health hub of the Western Sydney Local Health District, but also establish it as a world class health city. Various link bridges will provide connectivity with the adjacent Westmead Hospital, Childrens Hospital and Westmead Institute for Medical Research.
A 6-storey Innovation Centre will be constructed next to the CASB, providing public exhibition area, flexible workspaces, meeting and conference spaces, a Biobank facility and Education, Training and Research (ETR) facilities for the University of Sydney.
A forecourt plaza with two levels of basement parking will provide the entrances to the CASB, Emergency Departments and the Innovation Centre, and also feature cafes, public art installations and landscaping.
The Westmead Health Precinct is located in Sydneys West, just 2km from the heart of Parramatta. The ECI phase has commenced and a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) contract is due to be initiated in August 2017, with construction completion forecasted for late 2019.
It is advised that the National Construction Code 2016 applies to this project. Suppliers involved in the delivery of this project must be compliant with the conditions of the Code.
