The NSW Government has awarded a construction company with the $116 million Coffs Harbour Hospital Expansion Main Works project.
CPB Contractors will build a new five-storey clinical services building with a rooftop helicopter landing site, intensive care unit, maternity and paediatric inpatient units.
The upgrade will also include new connections to the existing hospital building at the ground and first floor levels, refurbishment of the existing hospital building and associated external works.
CPB Contractors Managing Director Juan Santamaria said the expansion builds on the company’s recent successful construction of Sydney’s Northern Beaches Hospital and its ongoing work at Nepean Hospital.
“We’re committed to working closely with NSW Health Infrastructure to ensure the safe and timely delivery of this important project,” he said.
CIMIC Group, CBP Contractors’ parent company, welcomed the announcement as its CEO and Managing Director Michael Wright said the project builds on the group’s track record in delivering health infrastructure across Australia.
“We’re particularly proud to be making this contribution to the quality of life and health care in this rapidly growing and important part of regional NSW,” he said.
Construction is expected to commence in April 2019 and conclude by the end of 2021.
