The Department for Infrastructure and Transport (DIT) has appointed Built Environs as the Managing Contractor for the new, purpose-built clinical services building at TQEH will support the delivery of world-class healthcare services for Adelaide’s western suburbs.
The project will deliver a new clinical services building comprising a 46-bay emergency department, 12 operating theatres, a 14-bed intensive care unit, a 52-bed rehabilitation unit and 4 procedure rooms. The new building will also include recovery spaces, a central sterile supply department, a medical imaging department, a cardiac catheterisation laboratory, a pathology laboratory and staff support areas.
Built Environs’ Managing Director Michael Clemenger said he was proud that Built Environs will be able to contribute to vital health infrastructure that will benefit the local community for generations to come.
“Enhancing the way people live, work and play is at the heart of Built Environs’ business, so we’re thrilled to be part of this community-enhancing project,” Mr Clemenger said.
“Importantly, this award reflects the company’s reputation as a leading commercial building contractor with a proven track record in solving our clients most complex hospital construction challenges.”
Built Environs’ State Manager, South Australia Tony Jachmann is excited to be working with on this major health development.
“Our team is looking forward to working with DIT, SA Health and CALHN and drawing on our experience in delivering innovative solutions tailored to the demands of complex, live hospital environments.”

Construction of the new clinical services building will commence in early 2022 and is expected to be completed in 2024.
Built Environs will work collaboratively with the broader project team to ensure minimal disruption to the existing hospital’s operations and employ innovative digital tools to drive value and efficiency while enhancing collaboration, communication and understanding.
