Procurement note:

The project is being procured as a part of the Queensland Government's Capacity Expansion Program (CEP). The CEP will deliver $9.8 billion worth of new and upgraded hospitals across 15 separate projects. CEP projects are being procured using a Pre-Qualified Panel model. Under the model, interested parties submit EOIs outlinining the list of projects or ‘bundles of projects’ they wish to participate in. Contractors successfully appointed to the panel will then be selected to participate in a Request for Tenders (RFT) phase for particular projects, or packages of projects.

The contract is being delivered through a Managing Contractor model, where John Holland will be required to deliver designs for the project by mid-2024 and must deliver a ‘value for money guaranteed construction price’, for the project prior to the main works construction phase. Detailed project scopes will be announced following completion of detailed designs next year.
