Bovis Lend Lease to deliver new Gold Coast University Hospital
By Richard High15 December 2008
Lend Lease subsidiary Bovis Lend Lease has won the contract to manage the design and construction of the new Gold Coast University Hospital in Queensland, Australia for Queensland Health. The value of the contract managed by Bovis Lend Lease will be about AU$ 1.4 billion (US$ 939 million) out of a total project cost of AU$ 1.55 billion (US$ 1.04 billion).
Bovis Lend Lease will act as Managing Contractor for the project and will work closely with the Major Hospitals Project Office, Queensland Health staff, the hospital's design team and other key stakeholders.
The nine-level, 750-bed hospital will be constructed adjacent to the Griffith University Gold Coast campus and will form part of a new hospital and "knowledge precinct" planned for the Gold Coast resort town of Southport.
Work on the site will begin in December this year and the hospital is scheduled to open at the end of 2012.
