Nepean Hospital Redevelopment

Services: Installation, Engineering, Prefabrication

Client: CPB Contractors

Location: Penrith, NSW

The NSW Government has committed $1 billion to deliver a major expansion and upgrade of Nepean Hospital, which is being delivered in two stages.

Stage 1 of the redevelopment included a new 14-storey hospital tower featuring an expanded Emergency Department, 18 birthing suites, a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, more than 16 operating theatres and more than 200 additional beds in contemporary and bright in-patient units.

Fredon was engaged under early contractor involvement on Stage 1 and provided value engineering to ensure specific needs were captured in the project scope.

Works included installing wide delta T series counter flow chiller plants and pre-assembling the valve sets and isolation room fan modules off-site to reduce on-site tasks.

The Stage 1 tower is now completed and is scheduled to open in 2022.
