Burwood Hospital Redevelopment Project - Leighs Cockram JV

In January 2014, Leighs Cockram Joint Venture commenced work on the Burwood Health Campus, the first major Government project to commence following the February 2011 earthquake.

Included in the 35,000mproject are three, three-storey ward blocks, providing accommodation for up to 230 patients; clinical support services, such as radiology and physiotherapy; an outpatient clinic that will cater for about 80,000 people each year; and general service spaces, such as kitchen, plant room and loading areas.

The project consists primarily of a large concrete and steel structure with significant ground remediation works and large concrete raft foundation and significant three-level tall pre-cast concrete cantilever columns. The back of house area services the increased hospital size and comprises a commercial hospital kitchen, clean and dirty loadig bays, supply and distributiion space and the plant to support the hospital. The boiler house contains two furnaces that run on wood waste and produce enough hot water and steam for the entire hospital.

The works were undertaken within an already busy, existing hospital facility, including ensuring the continuity of the existing services of steam, water, waste, power, data and electrical.

This new state-of-the-art facility for Canterbury's older people, is part of the largest and most complex hospital building project in the history of New Zealand's public health service. The work at Burwood Health Campus, together with the redevelopment of Christchurch Hospital, will cost more than $650 million.
