Lachlan Health Services
This project involved the creation of two new public hospitals, Forbes and Parkes. These two sites fall within the Lachlan Area Health District. Northrop were involved in the Hydraulic and Fire design solutions from concept through to construction.
One of the key aspects of this project, is that the two hospitals were procured under two different delivery methods, Forbes remained a full design and lump sum tender package, with Parkes being delivered under a Constructor’s involvement method. In both instances Northrop remained fully engaged in the delivery. Despite the delivery method adopted, Northrop worked closely with Health Infrastructure to ensure that their strict requirements (TS11 and other guidelines) were adhered to. This required proactive and regular consultation with all parties.
Furthermore the regional nature of the projects, relied on us actively researching and sourcing equipment and plant that would meet both the project requirements, and the availability in that region. This required consideration of not only the supply of the equipment, but extended to the long term maintenance and replacement regime.
