WCN Editorial Team 3 Jan 2019 OCEANIA BUILDINGS

CPB Contractors, a CIMIC Group company, has been selected by the NSW Government in Australia to construct the Coffs Harbour Hospital expansion main works.

The project, which will include a new five-storey clinical services building, will generate revenue of $116m to CPB Contractors.

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

CIMIC Group CEOI and managing director Michael Wright said: “This project further builds on the CIMIC Group’s strong track record in delivering health infrastructure across Australasia through CPB Contractors.

“We’re particularly proud to be making this contribution to the quality of life and health care in this rapidly growing and important part of regional NSW.”

The Coffs Harbour Hospital expansion main works will include 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; 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.

CPB Contractors managing director Juan Santamaria said: “The Coffs Harbour Hospital Expansion project builds on CPB Contractors’ recent successful construction of Sydney’s Northern Beaches Hospital and our ongoing work at Nepean Hospital.

“We’re committed to working closely with NSW Health Infrastructure to ensure the safe and timely delivery of this important project.”

In December 2018, CIMIC Group companies UGL and CPB Contractors were selected by TasWater, in an alliance partnership, to manage the delivery of its capital works programme to support and develop Tasmania’s water and wastewater infrastructure and major regional water projects.

The joint venture between CPB Contractors and UGL will generate revenue to CIMIC Group of $150m per annum, over an initial four-year period.

An alliance, to be established by UGL, CPB Contractors and TasWater, will manage infrastructure planning, project development and delivery of capital works across TasWater’s regional asset network in Tasmania.

The alliance will also be committed to utilising and building local capability and capacity by prioritising local business participation.

TasWater’s capital programme includes works on water and wastewater treatment plants, water networks, dams and water storage, and general asset renewal programmes.
