As part of the CPB Contractors consortium, Billard Leece Partnership (BLP) has been appointed to lead the architectural design for the new Bundaberg Hospital, in collaboration with Cox Architecture. The consortium was selected as the preferred bidder for stage one of the $1.2 billion project by the Queensland Government and signifies BLP’s first significant project in Queensland in the last 15 years.
The new Bundaberg Hospital will boast a modern six-storey health care facility that provides a broad range of services including acute, medical, surgical, and mental health care, as well as emergency and clinical support services, supplemented by essential infrastructure. The project is a core element of the Queensland Government’s comprehensive $9.78 billion Queensland Health and Hospitals Plan (Capacity Expansion Program).
It is a privilege to contribute to the delivery of the new Bundaberg Hospital, a project that will significantly enhance the Queensland region’s health infrastructure,” said BLP Managing Director, Tara Veldman
The project continues BLP’s collaboration with CIMIC Group’s CPB Contractors, following their successful partnership on the Campbelltown Hospital Redevelopment in NSW.
Our proven collaborative history with CPB Contractors is set to continue with this significant project,” says Veldman. “Our shared vision aims to establish a modern, future-proofed health facility that caters to the needs of the Bundaberg community and the wider Wide Bay-Burnett region.”
Design completion for the new Bundaberg Hospital is expected in early 2024, with main construction to follow.
