Building in Sydney will be 12- storeys high
Multiplex has won the main works contract to build Australia’s tallest hospital, forming the centrepiece of the $1bn Westmead Redevelopment in Sydney.
The 12-storey-high building has been designed by architect HDR Rice Daubney and will provide nearly 96,000m2 of space with a range of adult and paediatric services, including emergency, pharmacy, imaging, operating suites and in-patient units.
It will also include a floor-and-a-half of space dedicated to the University of Sydney. A helipad will be located on level 13 with underground car parking spaces also built.
A number of bridges will connect the new building with the existing Westmead Hospital and The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.
The design also includes the plaza and an outdoor public space equivalent to two football pitches.
The new hospital building is due to be completed in 2020.
