Donnelley Constructions recently donated construction equipment like the welding generator in the picture below to the School for Life Foundation. This worthwhile Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation working in rural Uganda. They build schools to provide communities with quality education, transforming developing communities to become more productive, sustainable and profitable places. It was great to see our donation was well received.


Blacktown Hospital Stage 2 and 3 – Enabling Works

Donnelley Constructions began work on Stage 2 and 3 in 2016, this project includes $40 million worth of upgrades to parking and roadways within the hospital campus.

This project also includes bulk excavation and diversion of existing infrastructure in preparation for new high-tech facilities.

Donnelley Constructions is also responsible for multiple refurbishment contracts upgrading areas in Forensic, Executive Suite, Inpatient Haemodialysis Unit and Project Offices.


Known for our ability to keep to tight timeframes and controlling multiple contracts simultaneously, Donnelley Constructions is on track to completing the new Regional Dialysis Centre at Blacktown Hospital in April. Construction started on the $6 million Health Infrastructure contract in October 2015. When complete the centre will be relocated to a new purpose built facility servicing more than 1.5 million outpatients for renal dialysis, education and training.

Blacktown Hospital Stage 2 Enabling Works began in February. This project includes $9 million worth of upgrades to parking and roads within the hospital campus. It also requires clearing space and upgrading infrastructure, ready for the future installation of new high-tech facilities.

Donnelley Constructions is also responsible for multiple minor refurbishment contracts upgrading areas in Forensic, Admissions and Project Offices.


Early Works Stage 2

Donnelley Constructions has now begun the Early Works Stage 2, in the redevelopment of Gosford Hospital for NSW Health Infrastructure, after successfully completing Stage 1 in May 2015.

This $8.3 million contract with NSW Health Infrastructure is part of the NSW Government’s major upgrade which is expected to be completed by 2019. This project will deliver a new emergency department, intensive care unit, an expanded high dependency unit, new operating theatres and maternity services including beds, birthing and a special care nursery.

Mr Baird said this project would transform the way health care is delivered to the Central Coast community.  “The redevelopment of Gosford Hospital is a priority for the NSW Government. The new Gosford Hospital will be a facility the people of the Central Coast can be proud of,” Mr Baird said.


Donnelly Constructions has been awarded a $4.1 million contract to upgrade Concord Hospital’s Translational Research Facility from Sydney Local Health District. This is part of the NSW Government’s pledge to turn Concord Hospital into a leading cancer treatment and research facility.

This project includes the design and construction of a PC2 laboratory to house research animals. It involves demolition, relocation of existing services and extensive mechanical works. Donnelley Constructions will be working in a live hospital environment, coordinating closely with the Hospital User Group and adhering to a strict budget.


The $7 million expansion of John Hunter Children’s Hospital was awarded to Donnelley Constructions and works on Stage One have already begun. This much needed upgrade will double the current neonatal intensive care floor space and increase beds from 42 to 53, putting it among the largest of the 10 neonatal intensive care units in the state.

Donnelley Constructions will be building greatly improved facilities for staff and parents, including privacy dividers between each special care crib, reclining chairs and mini fridges for storing breastmilk.

The Hospital’s Director of Newborn Services, Paul Craven, said the unit which opened in 1991, not only takes babies from the sprawling Hunter-New England region, but from across the state as well. He said it was a much needed project for the hospital and will be funded by Hunter Health Infrastructure.

The refurbishment will include demolition of existing internal areas, construction and fit out of the neonatal intensive care unit along with commissioning of all systems and providing operational training to all staff.


More than half of the 70 Castlereagh St building is now covered with panels, with work progressing on an internal construction phase.

The internal construction phase involves working with the building tenants, as well as handling hazardous materials.

Despite encountering delays as a result of asbestos, design and inclement weather, the program forecasts completion date is in 2015. The external works including the façade and Level 11 Deck works are set to finish in July 2015, and the internal reveal works are due to finish in August 2015.

Donnelleys aim is to remove the hoarding from the site as soon as possible.

The project site is on the corner of King Street and Castlereagh Street within the prestigious luxury fashion precinct of Sydney’s CBD.


Donnelley Constructions are in the final stages of completing the contract for earth works on the new Northern Beaches Hospital site.

The contract includes site clearing and statutory authority service diversions including Ausgrid, Gemena, Telstra, Optus, Sydney Water and contaminated material removal.

The new facility will be built on a 6.5 hectare site at Frenchs Forest.

We expect work to be completed in the next month to hand over to Health Scope, who will complete works by the end of 2018.

The new facility will host 488 beds, a 50-space emergency department, 14 operating theatres and six surgical suites.

The hospital will provide surgical, paediatric, obstetric, inpatient mental health services, and offer an emergency department.
