Gowdie Management Group was awarded the project management role for the relocation of the Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital and Osbourne Park Hospital executive team.
Two locations were proposed as potentially suitable areas and our team worked with the client to undertake preliminary design, programme, scope and costing to select the preferred location. Programme was the critical driver with budget and operational issues also high priorities.
On selection of the preferred location, the Gowdie team managed the project through all stages including; due diligence investigation; sourcing and coordinating consultants; working with several stakeholders to confirm and finalise the scope of works; coordinating development of design documentation; producing indicative cost estimates; managing the tender process; and managing the works through to project close.
Additional works were subsequently added and included the relocation of the Emergency Control Room for the hospital which introduced a further layer of specific communications requirements. Latent conditions encountered due to out of date building drawings also meant a significant redesign of the layout was required mid-project.
The project was completed on time and within budget.
