The Gosford Hospital Redevelopment Project is an $348 million 11 story building including a helipad located on the Central Coast. It includes a new state of the art Emergency Department, an intensive care/high dependency unit, six additional operating theatres and medical imaging services, significant increase of inpatient beds for medical, acute and sub-acute services, a psychiatric emergency care centre and cardiac unit, expanded maternity, cancer and cardiovascular services. It is one of the largest constructions on the Central Coast which meets clinical and community needs.
The contract included for the Site Early enabling works and construction of the new 36,000 sqm hospital tower and 9,000 sqm of Refurb. The early works saw the relocation/removal of some 25 submains and communications cabling serving the operating hospital. This was all complete with zero unplanned outages. Notable departments that were affected were the emergency, operating theatres and Local Health District Data Centre. These services needed to be re-feed to allow demolition of the existing buildings plus bulk excavation for the new tower.
On completion of design confirmation of the target GMP was provided. From this point the contract was finalised to the supply, delivery, install, testing, commissioning, certification, preventative maintenance and warranty of the complete Electrical Services installation to the Gosford Hospital Redevelopment (GHR). This includes Early Works, New Building works, Main Entrance Works, Refurbishment works, CSSD works and all associated works, whilst integrating with existing infrastructure in a live working hospital environment.

The project has provided a substantial benefit to the Central Coast community. The development will support the expanding population as it was the largest single development in the region. Upon completion of this project the development of 15 apprentices and 1 business administration trainee all sourced locally that also contributed to the 12% aboriginal participation on a fully designed and managed project is the greatest achievement. As the project delivered more than just a new building it changed people’s lives.
