CPB Contractors, a CIMIC Group company, has been selected by the New South Wales (NSW) Government in Australia to design and construct the WaggaWagga Health Service (WWHS) Stage 3 Redevelopment Project.

The project will generate revenue of A$107m ($77m) to the CIMIC Group.

Construction is expected to commence in February 2019 and operational commissioning is scheduled for late 2020.

CPB Contractors has recently secured an A$116m ($84m) Coffs Harbour Hospital Expansion Main Works and completed Sydney’s Northern Beaches Hospital in2018.

CIMIC Group CEO and managing director Michael Wright said: “CIMIC Group is continuing to demonstrate its outstanding capability in the delivery of health facilities across Australia.

“Through CPB Contractors, we’re committed to providing infrastructure to meet these vital community needs both now and for future generations.”

The project includes a new five-storey ambulatory care building adjacent to WaggaWagga Base Hospital; 28 aged care beds, 24 rehabilitation beds, a 24-bed mental health inpatient unit and a 20-chair renal dialysis unit; an education area, including library, conference rooms and a lecture theatre; and a basement carpark.

CPB Contractors managing director Juan Santamaria said: “CPB Contractors will bring the valuable experience from our other hospital projects to deliver a first-class facility for the people of WaggaWagga and surrounding areas.

“We look forward to continuing our strong working relationship with NSW Health Infrastructure to ensure the safe and timely delivery of this important project.”

The WWHS3 Redevelopment Project will bring sub-acute, ambulatory, community and primary health services onto a single site, and will meet the needs of communities in the wider Murrumbidgee Local Health District.

The Coffs Harbour Hospital Expansion Main Works won by CPB Contractors in January 2019 will include the construction of a new five-storey clinical services building with a rooftop helicopter landing site, Intensive Care Unit and surgical, maternity and paediatric inpatient units.

Construction is expected to commence in April 2019 and conclude by the end of 2021.

The Coffs Harbour Hospital Expansion Main Works will also include new connections to the existing hospital building at ground and first floor levels; refurbishment of parts of the existing hospital building; and associated external works.
