Design and construct contract awarded for $107M hospital works

A $107 million design and construction contract has been awarded for the Wagga Wagga Health Service (WWHS) Stage 3 Redevelopment Project.

CIMIC Group company CPB Contractors were selected for the project, with construction expected to begin later this month, with operational commissioning scheduled for late 2020.

The WWHS3 Redevelopment project involved the construction of a new five-storey ambulatory care building adjacent to the Wagga Wagga Base Hospital, 28 aged care beds, 24 rehabilitation beds, a 24-bed mental health inpatient bed and a 20-chair renal dialysis unit.

It will also include the construction of an education area and library, conference rooms and a lecture theatre along with a basement carpark.

The project aims to consolidate sub-acute, ambulatory, community and primary health services on a single site to meet the needs of communities in the wider Murrumbidgee Local Health District.

CIMIC Group Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director Michael Wright said the group is continuing to demonstrate its capability in the delivery of health facilities across Australia.

“Through CPB Contractors, we’re committed to providing infrastructure to meet these vital community needs both now and for future generations,” Wright said.

CPB Contractors Managing Director Juan Santamaria said the company looks forward to continuing its working relationship with NSW Health Infrastructure to ensure the safe and timely delivery of the project.

“CPB Contractors will bring the valuable experience from our other hospital projects to deliver a first-class facility for the people of Wagga Wagga and surrounding areas,” Santamaria said.

This contract follows the recent award to CPB Contractors of the $116 million Coffs Harbour Hospital Expansion Main Works and the 2018 completion of Sydney’s Northern Beaches Hospital.
