Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. has secured a key architectural design role in the $300 (approximately AUD$400) million second phase of the transformational Blacktown and Mount Druitt Hospitals Expansion Project in Australia. The hospital is being built to accommodate population growth in Sydney’s western suburbs.
Jacobs will deliver architectural services for stage two of the project, which includes a new emergency ward, intensive care unit, operating theaters and birthing and maternity departments. The company is also responsible for the electrical, information and communications technology, and security system design for this next stage.
"Our selection to participate in phase two is not only a testament to the work of our people during phase one but also the industry knowledge we bring to this landmark project which has set a benchmark for hospital design across Australia,” said Jacobs Senior Vice President, Buildings and Infrastructure, Patrick Hill. “The project has already won a number of significant industry awards and received extensive recognition by industry, government and the community. It brings tremendous value to Sydney, and Jacobs is set to continue to provide our extensive local and global experience to the project.”
Jacobs was involved in phase one of this project, which began in 2011, providing architectural and engineering design services for the 32,000 square meter, seven story clinical-services building.
