Joint Health Command Interim WorksNorthern Territory, Queensland, Victoria, Western Australia

Final Site (Larrakeyah Medical Facility) Design

Strategic Requirement

Joint Health Command expends more than $170M annually in the  provision of health care to ADF members. With the withdrawal of  troops from Afghanistan and East Timor the demand for services is  increasing, and conditions such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder  require improved facilities to treat and support returning soldiers. A  major Joint Health Command project covering 8 sites is being  prepared now, however the demand on existing facilities was such  that an interim bridging project was required.

About the Project

The interim works were let as either Design & Construct (D&C), or  small Design Services Consultant (DSC) projects. Point Project  Management was engaged as the Project Manager/Contract  Administrator (PM/CA), and as part of their commitment to Defence  excellence they engaged NDY as specialist reviewers. NDY reviewed  the design reports against the Defence Estate Quality Management  System (DEQMS) requirements, health requirements, and Building  Code of Australia/Australian Standards requirements. NDY's  involvement covered 7 sites and a construction budget of  approximately $100M.

NDY delivered the project reviews by drawing both from our Defence  and Health sector groups, and were able to significantly add value to  the projects on all sites. In particular we were able to identify issues  with the enabling infrastructure on Larrakeyah, and we proposed a  solution based on power upgrades we had already completed on the  base at the adjacent Single LEAP Stage II site. Following this, NDY  were engaged as designers to redesign the Larrakeyah Medical  Facility.
