In early February 2008, design and construction works were delayed and subsequently halted to allow the “User Group” and stakeholders a greater say in changing the design and layout of the new hospital.
Constructability reviews were undertaken in order to understand the impact of these changes. The result was a significant delay. The changes of scope added another 207 days of additional works, which indicated that Milestone 2 would now be achieved in 2011, later than the contracted date of 2010. This was unacceptable to the N.S.W. Government as there was an upcoming election.
Additional buildability reviews and changes to design scope and additional resources provided by the contractor and sub-contractors lead to a significant price increase of 75%, which after intense negotiations was accepted by the Client.
The construction scope reviews and changes to the logic enabled practical completion to be achieved in 2009 and the commissioning and relocation from the old hospital to the new was completed by 2010.
