John Cha, Procurement Assistant, Auckland DHB Facilities & Development
Auckland District Health Board (DHB) is looking for a main contractor for the physical works comprising:
• construction of the new six-storey central plant building;
• tunnel construction; and
• supply and install of building services, commissioning and construction services.
The Central Plant and Tunnel project is the single largest project within the Facilities Infrastructure Remediation Programme (FIRP) which is currently underway and the project funding has been approved.
Auckland DHB is looking for a main contractor that has the capability and experience, with an understanding of the complex environment within in which the project will be delivered.
One of the most fundamental challenges for the project is disruption management and limited changes to the hospital operation.
Therefore, it is important that the selected contractor has a proven track record of delivering projects with a diverse network of stakeholders, within a critical healthcare facility and with a sensitive surrounding environment.
As the works have an expected design life of 100 years, it is key that the building and tunnel is of a high quality, for future resilience and maintainability.
