The Sunshine Coast University Public Hospital (SCUPH) site is located on the 20 hectare Kawana Health Campus, an hour north of Brisbane. The $2 billion SCUPH project is a State Government initiative to address the growing health service needs of the Sunshine Coast community. The public hospital will open with approximately 450 beds in 2016 and grow to a 738 bed facility.
The new public tertiary facility is being delivered through a Public Private Partnership (PPP) contract with Exemplar Health, a consortium comprising Lend Lease, Siemens and Capella Capital, with partners Spotless Facilities Services. This consortium will design, build and finance the public hospital as well as maintain it for 25 years.
All ten tower cranes are now operational on site, which is a clear indication that construction activity is ramping up. The cranes can be seen all the way from Sunshine Coast hinterland areas, as far south as the beaches of Caloundra and back through to the hills of Buderim.
The first level of construction screens on the second multi-storey, eight level car park ‘P1’ are now being installed while construction of the Main Hospital building has also commenced, with concrete currently being poured on level three.
Trades such as formworkers, concreters, mechanical, services, electrical and hydraulics will increase on the public hospital site as a result of this construction. Nilsen are currently on site completing Temporary Electrical works, with plans to commence major works on the Main Hospital Building shortly.
