Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital

The Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital brings together the staff and services of the Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) and Mater Children’s Hospital (MCH) to provide specialist paediatric care for children. The 359 bed hospital has 12 clinical levels with room for expansion, a four-level basement car park for families and access to multi-level car parks for staff and visitors. It provides all specialised children’s health services in one location.

The outcome

As a result of the work conducted on this important project for the children of Queensland and their families, Aquenta was successful in negotiating significant savings for both head contract variations and sub contract variations. Our input into specialist engineering services resulted in reduced claims and the identification of incorrect claims giving rise to considerable savings for Queensland Health.
