CDHB Hospitals Redevelopment - contracts being let

HOSPITALS REDEVELOPMENT PARTNERSHIP GROUP

Canterbury DHB Hospitals Redevelopment - contracts being let for redevelopment in 2014

The main contract for construction of the Christchurch Hospital redevelopment will be advertised in the first six months of 2014 to ensure that companies are given early warning of the project and it can be completed as quickly and cost effectively as possible, according to the Hospitals Redevelopment Partnership Group.

“We’re looking to seek Expressions of Interest in the second quarter of next year, with a shortlist to be developed by the end of June,” HRPG spokesman and Canterbury District Health Board chair Bruce Matheson said.

Consultants were appointed to design and project-manage the Christchurch Hospital Redevelopment in July this year.

With a $650 million plus budget, the redevelopment of Christchurch and Burwood Hospitals is the largest ever health-related building project in New Zealand.

The main contractor for the Burwood Hospital project will be selected after tenders close on 30 October, this year. Contractors for this work have been shortlisted and will be including the pricing for their work and that of subcontractors in their responses at the end of the month, Mr Matheson said.

“The team that wins the Burwood contract won’t be exempt from also applying to work on Christchurch Hospital but we will be looking closely at the capacity of all companies to complete these major pieces of work on time and to budget,” he said.

There will be an overlap of nine months in 2015, when work at Burwood Hospital is being completed and construction starts at Christchurch Hospital.

This year, preparatory work is being done prior to construction of Burwood’s new state of the art facility for older people. This includes demolishing a number of old or earthquake-damaged buildings on the health campus; preparing the building platform; creating a new carpark; and setting up a temporary entrance and reception area for patients and visitors. Construction of the new 230-bed facility will begin in early 2014 and will be finished in stages from mid to late 2015.

Next year, similar enabling work will be done at Christchurch Hospital to prepare for its new acute services wing, which will include additional operating theatres and inpatient beds, a helipad, an extended intensive care unit, a new Emergency Department, Assessment Units, and Radiology Department, including services for children. This project is set for completion in early 2018.
