Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast, Mr Scot MacDonald MLC, and Member for Terrigal, Mr Adam Crouch MP, have welcomed the award of the pre-construction tender to Lend Lease for the Gosford Hospital redevelopment.
The NSW Government committed $368 million for the Gosford Hospital redevelopment in February this year.
Lend Lease has been engaged under an Early Contractor Involvement procurement method, where it will develop and finalise the design documentation and undertake further enabling works to prepare the site for main works construction.
At the end of the Early Contractor Involvement phase, Lend Lease will have the opportunity to submit an offer to complete the main works, set to commence in early 2016. Mr MacDonald said this marks an important step in the construction process.
“This procurement model provides an opportunity to get things really moving on the project, while developing plans to minimise the operational impact of the main building works.
“The contractor will be working closely in conjunction with NSW Health Infrastructure and the Central Coast Local Health District to ensure the success of this important redevelopment,” Mr MacDonald said.
Mr Crouch said it meant construction on the much anticipated Gosford Hospital redevelopment can happen sooner and provide significantly improved services to residents of Gosford and the Central Coast.
As a state significant development, an Environmental Impact Statement for the redevelopment has been lodged through the NSW Department of Planning and Environment (DPE).
The public consultation period has now closed and Health Infrastructure is preparing a response to the submissions received.
