Project Profile

The Campbelltown Hospital Redevelopment, Refurbishment and Decant Works Project consisted of eight separate stages to buildings A, B and C of the Campbelltown Hospital Campus. These works include the demolition and refurbishment of existing Hospital wards in areas ranging from physiotherapy, paediatrics, discharge lounge, maternity, birthing, patient records, theatres and the emergency dept. Works were also carried out at Camden Hospital in order to turn the existing theatre area into a new patient records storage facility. The existing patient records at Camden Hospital were fitted out into new office space.

The eight stages were broken down into sequences, 38 in total, in order to minimise disruption to each area and keep bed numbers elevated and office space to a maximum.

Services works/upgrades included mechanical, electrical, medical gas, fire (dry), nurse call, hydraulic and security.

Project Challenges

The prospect of working in a live hospital environment always poses a challenge to a project. Campbelltown Hospital and all areas surrounding the works remained open during the entire project and were accommodated accordingly.

Our approach to shared access sites is always one of consideration and professionalism ensuring minimal disruption to the hospital. Early warning notice was given to the hospital team to ensure all disruptions were approved before works commenced.

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