The project team is currently consulting with stakeholders and user groups in regard to:
- Developing the design for the new and refurbished facilities, including functional relationships, workflows, furniture and equipment
- Undertaking detailed pre-construction planning including existing condition investigations, traffic and access management, site establishment and materials handling, safety and risk planning and identifying all interfaces between the construction and the ongoing operation of the hospitals on the campus.
Works in Victoria Street, Monday 27 February 2017 to end of August 2017
The main contractor for the St Vincent’s Private Hospital Sydney Redevelopment, Buildcorp, will soon be commencing the work to provide the high-voltage electrical supply to the new building which is now under construction. This will entail the laying of conduits along the eastern side of Victoria Street for the full length of the Private Hospital. This work is scheduled to commence on Monday 27 February 2017 and be completed by the end of May 2017, and will be carried out during normal construction hours, Mondays through Saturdays.
It is intended to undertake the excavation of the roadway in sections so as to not lose all the car parking at once. Note that the excavation will be in the car parking bays on the eastern side of the carriageway and will not block the through-traffic on Victoria Street at any time. See the sketch below which shows the 11 separate, sequential areas of excavation. Note that the excavation in front of each of the Private Hospital’s driveways will be undertaken in halves so that one half of each driveway will remain open to traffic at any one time.
The footpaths along Victoria Street will also remain open at all times, there will be barriers between the public and the work zone, and there will be traffic controllers to assist vehicular and pedestrian traffic throughout the works.
Please note that it is Buildcorp’s responsibility to temporarily make good to the road and footpath surfaces at the end of these works, and that Council will return later (at dates to be advised) to make the final rectification to the road and footpath surfaces.
The redevelopment team will continue to monitor and minimise construction impact on the operations of the Public Hospital, Private Hospital, Sacred Heart and Clinic during these works.
