Northern, North Eastern & Western Communities Mental Health Centres

Three Community Mental Health centres, located in the north, north-east and western suburbs of Adelaide, were developed to providing consulting and office space for SA Health workers and their clients.

Our involvement

Aquenta was engaged by Grieve Gillett Andersen to provide full Cost Management Services for each of the three centres. Working closely with the project team; Department for Planning, Transport & Infrastructure (Building Management Project Services) and SA Health, we provided a range of estimating services from feasibility to construction; as well as Contract Cost Management Services through to completion of each project.

The outcome

The development of the north-east community centre was put on hold for a year, due to budget constraints. The project was reactivated in early 2014 and it progressed on time and within budget, and construction was completed in 2014. The northern and western centres were completed in 2012 and 2013 within the estimated time frame and within budget.

Careful attention to costs for various options enabled each project to maximise opportunities and outcomes within defined budget constraints.
