Gosford Hospital Multi-stage Early Works

Project Profile

Donnelley Constructions was awarded the multi-stage early works at Gosford Hospital by Health Infrastructure. These works were part of the Government’s major redevelopment for healthcare provision on the Central Coast.

Early Works Stage 1

The scope of works included the design development, internal demolition, refurbishment, and internal fit out of both the Mandala Building and LHD Administration building. The building services were upgraded along with surrounding landscape and signage.

Early Works Stage 2

Stage 2 scope of works included internal demolition and complete fitout of multiple departments. It included upgrading all existing services and supplying new services for dry fire, Pathology Pneumatic tube and security systems.

This major stage delivered a new Ambulatory department with eight new treatment bays, three clinical consulting rooms for the Psychology department, an outpatient treatment facility housing eight treatment bays with clinical consulting rooms and administration space for the Physiotherapy department and a Diagnostic testing laboratory for the Pathology department. The non-clinical support services that were delivered included a Simulation Centre for advanced medical training, computer training room and car parking was substantially increased.

Early Works Stage 3

Stage 3 works included the design, construct, and refurbishment of over 3,000m2 of office space within the Library and Research departments. It involved the supply, installation and fitout of demountable office buildings, refurbishment of existing buildings, excavation works and inground services reticulation.

Project Challenges

Donnelley Constructions has extensive experience with working in a sensitive, live environment and again at Gosford Hospital all services remained operational throughout the entirety of the works.

Adding to the challenges faced by the operations team, was working next to the Kullaroo Medical Centre which ran clinics all week. Regular communication with the associated hospital staff was paramount and precise planning lead to a very successful outcome.
