Major Hospital Contract For Fletcher Construction

AUCKLAND, 6 July 2001 – Fletcher Construction has been awarded a $180 million contract to construct a new Acute Services Block for Auckland Healthcare, on its Grafton site.

The contract was signed on-site yesterday in a ceremony attended by Annette King, Minister of Health, Auckland Healthcare dignitaries and Fletcher Construction executives.

For the past 18 months, Fletcher Construction has been working in a Preferred Contractor role with Auckland Healthcare, its Health Services Delivery Team and design consultants, to complete the design development phase. The company was selected in a keenly contested process on the basis of proven capability. Recent design-and-build experience in Australia on seven major private and co-located hospitals was considered by Auckland Healthcare to be a significant advantage.

The original Acute Services Block at Grafton was also built by Fletcher Construction, as were major hospital blocks in Dunedin, Christchurch, Wellington, Palmerston North, New Plymouth and Hamilton; and internationally in Singapore, Hong Kong and throughout the Pacific Islands. A Fletcher Construction team is also engaged on the redevelopment of Nelson Hospital.

Other major Auckland projects of Fletcher Construction include the PricewaterhouseCoopers Tower for AMP, the upgrade of the Mangere Wastewater Treatment Plant and foreshore remediation work for Watercare, and the redevelopment of North Shore Hospital.
