The Fiona Stanley Hospital is the state’s flagship health facility — a $2 billion tertiary hospital that will offer comprehensive health care services to communities in the south of Perth and across Western Australia.
With completion achieved in December 2013, the 783-bed hospital will provide a range of acute medical and surgical services, and be the home of Western Australia’s major centre for treatment of trauma, burns, and heart and lung transplants. It will also include:
Engineering Review Team: Key challenges were the engagement of the team at critical points early enough in the design process to be able to add value before the design is too far cast and the design is fixed. In addition there is pressure on the Health client to find savings during the design process whilst the construction is progressing.
Clerk of Works Team: Key challenges included the identification of work that was not compliant with the design/specifications at an early stage to provide ample opportunity for rectification works. Incremental defect inspections were conducted to facilitate practical completion.
Engineering Project Manager: Key challenges included ensuring FF&E information was provided to the managing contractor at agreed times to allow the design to be finalised without delaying the construction program.
