Stage 2 of $399 million Caboolture development under way

Posted: 2pm 04 Jun 2021

The contract for stage two of the $399 million Caboolture Hospital redevelopment project has been awarded to construction group Lendlease.

Lendlease, which is also the managing contractor of stage one, will progress work on the new five-storey clinical services building and a multi-storey car park while also refurbishing and modernising areas.

Work on the $352.9 million hospital redevelopment section began around 18 months ago. It is due to finish in 2023 bringing increased bed capacity and providing facilities and access to specialist health care services.

A giant piling rig has recently been moved into position to start work on the new $46.6 million multi-storey car park.

“The Caboolture Hospital Redevelopment will provide the community with a modern health facility that can deliver specialised healthcare and complex services to those that need it most,” says Queensland Minister for Health and Ambulance Services Yvette D’Ath.

“It will not only increase the size of the hospital and the scope of services being offered, but it will allow more patients to access the health services they need closer to home.”

Design focus

Lendlease Building General Manager, Brad Protheroe said the team was focussed on a redevelopment design for the growing operational requirements of the hospital.

“We have worked closely with the Queensland Government, Caboolture Hospital and Metro North Health Service to identify a design that meets the needs of all key stakeholders, practitioners, patients and visitors to the hospital,” he says.

This project will also serve as a testing ground for local initiatives in sustainable construction practices – a key target for Lendlease, Mr Protheroe said.

The move was welcomed by State Member for Pumicestone Ali King: “With the first two tower cranes onsite, we’re ready to build a bigger and better hospital for the Caboolture community and we’re building it in a sustainable way.”

Member for Morayfield Mark Ryan welcomed the project’s support of local jobs and Member for Bancroft Chris Whiting said an extra 9475 frontline health staff would be employed in Queensland in the next four years.
