The project has a number of unique features, including
project documents which include a visionary output-focused project
What was the project?
The largest, most complex and highest value social
infrastructure project ($1.7 billion) to be undertaken in Australia
as a PPP, the New Royal Adelaide Hospital Project will replace the
existing Royal Adelaide Hospital and will be South Australia's
flagship public hospital.
The New Royal Adelaide Hospital will be an ambitious,
state-of-the-art hospital on North Terrace in the heart of
Adelaide's CBD. Patients will be cared for in single-bed rooms,
with cutting-edge technology at their bedside which minimises the
need to move them around the hospital. There will also be a high
level of automation, including automated vehicles to deliver
facilities management services.
The private sector's SA Health Partnership consortium will
undertake the financing, design, construction and operation of the
non-clinical services of the hospital for 35 years, while SA Health
will continue to operate the hospital and provide all core clinical
services, staffing, teaching and research.
What's so unusual about the New Royal Adelaide Hospital
The project has a number of unique features, including project
documents which include a visionary output-focused project brief,
requiring consideration of "whole of life" in the most
complete sense of that concept. They also include requirements
longevity of the building itself;
the building to facilitate expansion and adaptability over
the building to facilitate inevitable changes in the delivery
of clinical care.
Because of the high level of automation and advanced technology
solutions, the level of integration between the state's and the
successful proponent's ICT will be more extensive than any
other Australian hospital.
What did Clayton Utz do?
A team led by Melbourne partner Jo Pugsley is jointly advising
(with the South Australian Crown Solicitor's Office) the South
Australian Government. We developed the strategy for the delivery
of the project and drafting of the project documents, evaluation,
negotiation and financial close of the project, which occurred on
Monday 6 June 2011.
