Waterman prepared the design brief and undertook the technical advisory role for the State Government. The project incorporated the technical briefing of all engineering and ESD services for the new 150,000 sqm Children’s Hospital.

Designed by Bates Smart and Billard Leece Partnership, the new hospital has the capacity to treat an additional 35,000 patients each year. The $1 billion project is the largest hospital redevelopment to be undertaken by the State Government, and this expansion will allow The Royal Children’s Hospital to continue meeting growing demand through an increase in acute paediatric beds and emergency department services.

Waterman’s role in the project included brief preparation, bid evaluation, comprehensive design review, design compliance checking, commissioning strategy proposals and final on-site witness testing of commissioning as verification and acceptance on behalf of the State.
