Westmead Redevelopment Works
The Westmead Health Precinct in NSW is currently undergoing a $1 Billion+ upgrade - one of the biggest public health infrastructure projects in the state. The existing hospital is over 40 years old and the new upgrades will provide the local community and future generations with world-class clinical services for many years to come.
As construction is being carried out within a “live” hospital environment under time critical deadlines, the works have been carefully staged across a number of years and milestones to minimise disruption. Northrop has been involved in the project since 2017 and continues to provide multi-disciplinary services with our client, FDC.
Throughout the project, our team has gained valuable experience in working across multiple organisational levels within healthcare – particularly, by collaborating with user groups (management, clinical staff and nurses) by exploring all options for how best to deliver services in the new spaces. We have also had the opportunity to improve efficiencies and quality of our work by producing all our documentation in Revit, which forms a live BIM model for the service life of the building.
With stages 1 and 2 now complete, construction on stage 3 is expected to commence in early 2021. This development is expected to transform healthcare in Western Sydney and Northrop is looking forward to continuing to contribute to such an important community project.
