The NSW Government has awarded its lucrative contract for the construction of a new 14-storey clinical building at Nepean Hospital.
CPB Contractors, a CIMIC Group company, was selected to deliver Stage 1 of the Nepean Hospital Redevelopment.
The government-funded project is expected to generate revenue of approximately $349 million for the company.
Work has already commenced at Nepean Hospital and is expected to be completed in 2021.
The new facility, across a building area of over 55,000 square metres at the existing hospital site in Kingswood in Western Sydney, will include a new emergency department, more than 200 overnight beds and more than 12 new operating theatres.
CIMIC Group Chief Executive Officer, Michael Wright, said, “CIMIC Group continues to provide essential infrastructure for local communities, including health facilities, public transport infrastructure and new motorways.
“We’re committed to leveraging our strong experience and wide-ranging skills to meet these vital community needs now and for future generations.”
CPB Contractors Managing Director, Juan Santamaria, said, “The Nepean Hospital Redevelopment Stage 1 builds on CPB Contractors’ growing portfolio of hospital projects and our strong commitment to Western Sydney.
“CPB Contractors is proud to continue our close working relationships with the NSW Government and Western Sydney communities.”
The award follows CPB Contractors’ recent selection by the NSW Government to deliver the Campbelltown Hospital Redevelopment Stage 2 project.
The company is also currently delivering the Wagga Wagga Health Service Stage 3 Redevelopment, the Coffs Harbour Hospital Expansion Main Works and the Campbelltown Hospital Redevelopment.
Its other projects in Western Sydney include Parramatta Light Rail Stage 1, The Northern Road Stages 5 and 6 upgrades, and early earthworks contracts for Western Sydney Airport.
