Cimic subsidiary CPB Contractors is to design and built an expansion of the Royal Prince Alfred (RPA) Hospital at Camperdown in Sydney on behalf of the government of New South Wales (NSW).

The project involves the construction of a 15-floor acute care building, which will be joined to the main hospital building, as well as an expansion of the existing structure both horizontally and vertically. There will also be refurbishment works and the creation of a helicopter landing site.

Upgrade work will be carried out at a number of the RPA’s departments, including emergency, intensive care, acute inpatient, paediatrict, imaging, surgical and women and babies.

Juan Santamaria, Cimic’s chairman, said; “We are pleased to be selected to deliver the most significant redevelopment works in RPA Hospital’s 140-year history, supporting it to continue delivery of advanced health services for its local community and patients.”

Jason Spears, CPB Contractors’ managing director, said: “We are focused on putting the needs of health workers, patients and community first, as well as ensuring minimal disruption to the hospital operations, while providing local employment and traineeship opportunities, and seeking Indigenous and social procurement.”

CPB Contractors will work with NSW’s Health Infrastructure on the project.

Construction is due to begin in 2024 and will be completed in 2028.
