Key information

Location: Perth

Date started: 2008

Completion date: Ongoing

The Western Australian Government faced a challenge to create a new purpose-built children’s hospital that would increase capacity, facilitate leading research and better serve the community now and in the future. The 298-bed hospital will provide the full spectrum of inpatient services - quaternary, tertiary, secondary - as well as ambulatory care clinics and the State’s premier paediatric research institute.

  • 125,000 m2 floor area
  • 9,500 m2 integrated research institute
  • 12 ultra-clean modular theatres

Making the difference

Turner & Townsend’s large and diversely skilled staff base allowed for quick mobilisation of expert consultants to enable the client to meet tight deadlines across a number of specialist disciplines.

By providing the right data, options, analysis and advice, public officials were comprehensively supported to make timely evidence based decisions ensuring value for money in a highly complex high profile publicly funded project.

The AUD1.2 billion Perth Children’s Hospital will provide the best possible clinical care for future generations and will be the base for continuing Western Australia’s outstanding paediatric research.
