Health facilities upgrade – Townsville

The J0105 Joint Health Command Garrison Health Facilities Upgrade Project will upgrade and consolidate certain Australian Defence Force (ADF) health centres around Australia.

This will include construction of new facilities as well as refurbishment of existing facilities, to improve the delivery of health services to ADF personnel.

The existing health centre at RAAF Base Townsville will be decommissioned and a new health centre will be constructed over the existing Airmen’s Mess based on a fully documented design.

As part of the construction, the Airmen’s mess will be demolished, as well as existing ablutions adjacent to the Spotless building.

The new build will be a single storey building at approximately 1000m2.

It will be a steel-framed structure with a steel roof and will include services and finishes typical of modern health facilities.

Existing facilities will continue to operate and the existing health centre will only be demolished upon completion of the new health centre.

The contractor will be responsible for protecting the existing operational health centre whilst demolition and construction works are in progress. It will be a comprehensive modern health facility similar to a General Practice Super-Clinic.

The preferred contractor will be employed under the Head Contractor Contract (Construct Only).

Estimated Value: From $12-$17 million

Closing Date: 12:00 PM Tuesday 11 December 2018

Enquiries: Kristian Wheeler (Aurecon Group), Mob: 0407 990 299, Fax: (03) 9975 3444,
