Jacobs Engineering Group has been selected for phase two of the Blacktown and Mount Druitt Hospitals expansion project in Australia.

Jacobs will deliver architectural services for the $300M second phase, which will involve the construction of a new emergency ward, intensive care unit, operating theatres, and birthing and maternity departments.

The scope of the work also includes electrical, information and communications technology, as well as security system design.

Jacobs’ senior vice president of buildings and infrastructure Patrick Hill said: "Our selection to participate in phase two is not only a testament to the work of our people during phase one, but also the industry knowledge we bring to this landmark project which has set a benchmark for hospital design across Australia.

“The project has already won a number of significant industry awards and received extensive recognition by industry, government and the community. It brings tremendous value to Sydney, and Jacobs is set to continue to provide our extensive local and global experience to the project.”

The company has also provided architectural and engineering design services for the 32,000 sq m, seven-storey clinical services building, part of the first phase of the project.

Stage 1 involved the construction of a new hospital building, cancer centre, and mental health unit, as well as extensive internal refurbishment, infrastructure upgrades and more parking at Blacktown Hospital. At Mount Druitt Hospital, it included new facilities for rehabilitation, dental care, emergency, urgent care and sterilising.
