Northern Beaches Hospital Earth works

Project Profile

Donnelley Constructions was awarded the contract for early works for the new Northern Beaches Hospital site. The contract included site clearing and statutory authority service diversions including Ausgrid, Jemena, Telstra, Optus, Sydney Water, closing down of an existing government road and contaminated material removal.

The new Northern Beaches Hospital has now been constructed on this 6.5 hectare site at Frenchs Forest.

Project Challenges

A major challenge of this project was controlling site access into the site to minimise impact on the neighbouring Frenchs Forest High School, major roadways and local shops. With major excavation and services relocation works, strict traffic control procedures were put in place to ensure the highest safety standards. Donnelley Constructions approach to shared access sites is always one of consideration and professionalism.

The site team’s ability to communicate with stakeholders in all situations saw them manage the challenges, and ensure a smooth delivery was achieved.
