Multiplex to deliver $900m Westmead Redevelopment in NSW


Posted by Monica Gameng

Multiplex has been appointed as the head contractor to deliver the $900 million Westmead Redevelopment – New South Wales’ biggest hospital redevelopment project.

Main works will include a 12-storey acute services building within the Westmead health, education and research precinct. The building will be connecting Westmead Hospital as well as The Children’s Hospital and it will also provide 95,559SQM of space for a range of paediatric and adult services, which will include pharmacy, emergency, imaging and a number of state-of-the-art operating suites.

Under an ‘Early Contractor Involvement’, Multiplex has engaged with Westmead clinicians, patients, families and community members in order to finalise the redevelopment design.

“Not only will it deliver much-needed improved medical services to Greater Western Sydney, but the project will also generate significant employment throughout its construction and beyond.

“We intend to use this opportunity to leave a positive legacy in the Greater Western Sydney area, with a number of social investments planned including committing five per cent of the total contract price to Aboriginal Participation in Construction (APIC),” said Multiplex Regional Managing Director David Ghannoum.

Early construction works will begin in June 2017 with major construction works expected to commence in September 2017. The new clinical acute services building is anticipated to open in 2020. The project's construction is expected to create up to 1,500 jobs annually.
