The Government has approved funding to invest in Project Pihi Kaha, Whangārei Hospital Redevelopment. This will replace a large section of the main hospital block and includes:
• building an acute services building (ASB) for theatres, ED, ICU, a coronary care unit, a cardiac catheter laboratory, radiology and support services
• rebuilding the existing child health centre (CHC) and Whānau House in the western part of the campus; these are currently on the site of the proposed ASB
• design of a ward tower adjacent to the ASB. This would accommodate four medical-surgical wards and an acute assessment unit, which is enough new and replacement capacity to fully vacate and decommission the end-of-life surgical wing. Te Whatu Ora and the Government will reconsider funding for the ward tower in 2024, before construction starts on the ASB.
The new CHC (named Tira Ora) is one of a suite of projects that form part of Project Pihi Kaha. The Masterplan for the Whangārei Hospital site proposes to progressively re-organise the part of the campus between Hospital Road and West End Avenue in preparation for the 42,000sqm redevelopment which will become Stage 1 of the New Whangārei Hospital. The existing CHC is situated just south of Carpark 16 between Hospital Road and West End Avenue. It sits within the new hospital footprint and will need to be demolished to make way for the new ASB and Ward Tower. Ahead of demolition, Tira Ora needs to be fully operational and thus is one of the first enabling works for the wider hospital redevelopment and is on the critical path.
This Request for Proposal (RFP) is an invitation to suitably qualified consultants to submit a Proposal for Architectural design services for Project Tira Ora - Child Health Centre.
