The value of works to be delivered by John Holland on the project will total approximately AU$800 (£534m), subject to progression to the second phase of the two-stage managing contractor process.
The project includes the design and construction of a new children’s hospital to replace the existing Princess Margaret Hospital for Children (PMH). The hospital will have capacity for 274 beds, house the state's only paediatric trauma centre and nearly double the number of theatres that presently exist at PMH.
Design development will start immediately, with works expected to start on site in January 2012 and completion by mid 2015.
John Holland group managing director Glenn Palin said: "Today’s announcement follows our recent success with the Perth City Link Project and builds on our long history delivering major public health projects both in Western Australia and around the country."
General manager of John Holland’s Western Region Adam Harry said: "John Holland has assembled an industry leading team of architects, engineers, project managers and construction professionals with contemporary experience in the design of paediatric health facilities, combined with John Holland’s local knowledge and expertise in the construction of major hospital projects."
