Built Environs is pleased to announce that it has been appointed as the Managing Contractor for the pre-construction services for the Modbury Hospital Upgrade Project in South Australia.

Daryl Young, Managing Director of Built Environs said the project driven by Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) and SA Health is a community improvement program of work enhancing the design of the hospital and improving access to patient care.

“Adding to Built Environs’ project portfolio, the upgrade will provide much needed medical services, with a 20-bed palliative care unit, 26 short stay medical beds, 8 emergency extended care beds and an expansion of the surgical floor,” Mr Young said.

“The Built Environs project team are mindful of providing best practice in service delivery and ensuring minimal interruptions.  This is at the forefront of our thinking in the pre-construction services stage.”

As Managing Contractor, Built Environs will work collaboratively with DPTI, SA Health and their project design team to assist with the development and provide technical input into the design elements and enhancements to meet budget and time constraints.

Having previously won industry awards for innovation, quality and timely delivery on the prior Transforming Health Modbury Hospital Project, this partnership is one that is being embraced by all stakeholders.

Mr Young said Built Environs had a very clear understanding of the health environment and have experience and familiarity with policies, procedures and frameworks to create a concise and effective multidisciplinary team, for delivery of a project that is vital for the people of Adelaide.
