Multiplex secures Royal North Shore Hospital building project

Brookfield Multiplex has been appointed by NSW Health Infrastructure to build the new clinical services building at the Royal North Shore Hospital (RNSH), delivering an additional 30,000 square metres of health services to the campus which is one of the state’s major trauma centres.

The appointment follows the completion of other health projects in New South Wales by Brookfield Multiplex including the Campbelltown and Auburn Hospitals redevelopments.

Brookfield Multiplex is also contracted to deliver the new Chris O’Brien Lifehouse at RPA in Sydney, due for completion mid this year.

"This appointment builds on our reputation for delivering vital health projects in New South Wales and around the world," said David Ghannoum, the regional managing director of New South Wales at Brookfield Multiplex.

"At its peak construction the project will create 2,200 jobs," he added. 

Construction on the Building Studio Architects and Woods Bagot-designed project will commence in early April 2013 and expected to be fully operational in late 2014.

Bound by Westbourne Street, Herbert Street, Red Road and Kolling Lane in St Leonards, the nine-level building will connect with the hospital’s existing infrastructure and services.

The new building will provide a variety of services including a private mental health unit on level two, a women’s health and maternity unit across levels three and four, a general inpatient unit on level five, and a severe burns unit on level six. A pediatric inpatient unit will make up level seven.
