Westmead Redevelopment – Central Acute Services Building (CASB)

Services: Installation, Engineering

Client: Multiplex

Location: Westmead, NSW

Westmead Hospital Redevelopment is a NSW Government initiative to provide ongoing high-quality healthcare for the communities of the Greater Western Sydney region.

The redevelopment of the precinct involved the construction of a new 14 level Central Acute Services Building (CASB) which will serve both adult and children patients. The CASB has 1.5 floors dedicated to the University of Sydney for education, training and research purposes.

Fredon was engaged for the Design and Construction of the mechanical service in the building.

The team installed the full mechanical air handling plants for all areas of the hospital. These included specialty rooms such as the 28 isolation rooms, 25 operating theatres, the Sterilising Service Department, NSW Infectious Disease Unit and the Pneumatic Tube System, which links CASB with Westmead’s Adult and Children hospitals.

Fredon was also responsible for the supply and installation of the Building Management System (BMS) and the install of the Heating and Chilled Water Plants and the Specialist Exhaust systems.

The Central Acute Services Building reached practical completion in May 2020, three months ahead of schedule.
