Increasing emergency, critical and surgical care in Adelaide’s western suburbs

The Queen Elizabeth Hospital (TQEH) will be modernised and its emergency, critical care and surgical capabilities increased with the construction of a new six-level clinical services building.

The building will feature a 46-bay emergency department, 12 operating theatres, a 14-bed intensive care unit, a 52-bed rehabilitation unit, four procedure rooms, recovery spaces, a central sterile supply department, a medical imaging department, a catheterisation laboratory, a pathology laboratory and staff support areas.

Built Environs will provide DIT and SA Health with procurement, coordination, testing and commissioning services for the new major medical equipment, furniture, fittings and equipment.

The project will create at least 390 jobs per year, with 90 – 95% of those jobs directly employing South Australian residents.

Staged delivery across multiple work fronts from chassis construction through to fit out will be fast-tracked to get this vital project completed.

Fast Facts:

  • 6 levels including basement
  • 46 bay emergency department

Creative Construction

With the construction site located adjacent to the existing hospital and associated health services, our delivery approach has been developed to minimise disruption and keep TQEH operational throughout construction.

High productivity and reduced site congestion will be achieved through our smart piling approach, while our optimised slab pour methodology will provide improved quality outcomes, mitigate critical path risks and increase program certainty.
