Built Environs has been engaged as the Managing Contractor for The Queen Elizabeth Hospital (TQEH) Stage 3 Redevelopment.

The development will provide a new clinical services building, which will house a 46-bay emergency department, 12 operating theatres, a 14-bed intensive care unit, a 52-bed rehabilitation unit, 4 procedure rooms, recovery spaces, a central sterile supply department, a medical imaging department, a cardiac catheterisation laboratory, a pathology laboratory and staff support areas.

The new, purpose-built building will modernise TQEH and increase the emergency, critical care and surgical capabilities, supporting the delivery of world-class healthcare service to patients in Adelaide’s western suburbs.

The fast-tracked project comprises staged delivery across multiple work fronts from chassis construction through to fit out.

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.

Our smart approach to piling will achieve high productivity and minimise site congestion, while our optimised slab pour methodology will enhance quality outcomes, mitigate critical path risk, and provide improved program certainty.

Built Environs will help DIT and SA Health procure, coordinate, test and commission the hospital’s 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.

This project builds on Built Environs’ successful delivery of the Modbury Hospital Upgrade—one of the most complex live and operational health redevelopment projects ever delivered in South Australia.
