Northrop awarded contract as part of the $780M John Hunter Health and Innovation Precinct Project
Michael DiRienzo, Chief Executive Hunter New England Local Heath District, announced last week that Northrop Consulting Engineers will join the team working on the $780M John Hunter Health and Innovation Precinct Project.
Engaged by Health Infrastructure, Northrop will provide all structural and civil engineering services for the planning phase of this exciting project.
“We are a locally owned business with a history of employing local graduates. Many of these graduates are now our business leaders who will be helping deliver this iconic project for Newcastle” says Todd Bailey, Northrop Principal and Senior Structural Engineer.
The project will deliver expanded health services and facilities, including a new emergency department and improvements to critical care. Additionally, it will create new opportunities for education, training and employment for staff and the broader community.
“This project will not only create vital jobs and attract top talent to the region, it will put Newcastle on the map in terms of a world class health, education and innovation precinct” says Neil Petherbridge, Northrop Principal and Northern NSW Regional Manager.
Northrop brings to the project extensive experience in the health sector, having worked on and delivered hundreds of successful projects across Australia, over the last 40 years.
“This project provides an ideal opportunity for us to demonstrate our outstanding capability in the delivery of health facilities in our very own city” continues Mr Petherbridge.
“We look forward to working with Health Infrastructure, Hunter New England Local Health District, TSA Management, BVN Architecture and fellow engineers and consultants to deliver this significant project for Newcastle and the broader Hunter Region.”
