Perth Children’s Hospital

Perth Children’s Hospital

This iconic project valued at $1.2 billion supersedes the old Princess Margaret Hospital as the new centre of excellence for children’s health and research. Now fully functional it provides 298 beds and 12 theatres, and access to the latest medical facilities, designed especially for the needs of children. Telethon Kids Institute and the University of Western Australia also use the new facilities to conduct major paediatric research and education initiatives.

Stage One contracts package included the initial set-out, piling beams, retaining walls and service tunnel. Our conscientious efforts resulted in being awarded the contract for the Northern Superstructure, and the concrete package for the entire project. Due to the nature and size of the project, our workforce repeatedly peaked above one hundred and fifty personnel, distributed from one end of the project to the other across a wide variety of work-fronts and tasks.

Our internal workforce erected and operated the Perimeter Safety Screens shown in the images below. Covering up to five working levels, these mesh screens are designed to virtually eliminate the potential for falls including dropped objects, by wrapping the building in a steel mesh cage, that can be systematically raised as the structure climbs. This high level of protection was of critical importance as construction was adjacent to the existing Charles Gairdner Hospital emergency department.

Crown Construction Services are proud to have contributed to the construction of this new facility for Perth families and the greater Western Australia.
