Contractor Multiplex has completed work on the Acute Services Building in Kogarah, New South Wales (NSW), Australia.
The new nine-level building is the centrepiece of the $277m redevelopment of St George Hospital. Among the various features of the Acute Services Building include a 52-bed intensive care unit and high dependency unit, cardiac catheterisation unit, eight digital and interventional operating theatres, 128 inpatient beds, a sterilising services department, a rooftop helipad, as well as office support areas.
The building also comprises an atrium that connects the new structure with the existing ED, Tower Ward Block and Clinical Services Building.
Multiplex regional director NSW Daniel Murphy said: “The completion of the Acute Services Building marks another milestone in our ongoing collaboration with NSW Health Infrastructure. This project was highly specialised in nature with state-of-the-art medical grade inclusions and construction also occurred within an active hospital campus environment.”
