Blacktown and Mt Druitt Hospital expansion Stage 2 – Mt Druitt Stage 2 Refurbishment (Hl16372) Letter of Appreciation
Health Infrastructure would like to thank and congratulate Fugen Constructions for the successful delivery of the Mt Druitt Refurbishment project, and the overall collaboration and efforts of the team. The Refurbishment scope included the construction of a new Pre-admissions Clinic (PAC), new Stage 1recovery, fitout of digital operating theatre in a shell space, construction of a new MRI suite, refurbishment of existing clinical space into a Stage 3 recovery and various other upgrades within a live hospital environment.
The project co-ordination constraints required a collaborative approach to facilitate the continuation of clinical services within the adjacent operational hospital. Fugen carried out meticulous planning to ensure the co-ordinated delivery and installat ion of the MRI and Digital Operating Theatre upgrade within a live theatre suite. Notwithstanding the nature of the refurbishment project in an aged building, there was no compromise on the level of completeness and quality at Completion. Furthermore, the exceptional management of the live environment disruption protocols to facilitate the various services upgrades has been acknowledged by all the relevant stakeholders.
The Western Sydney Local Health District, end users, and Health Infrastructure are extremely pleased with the end result and the overall standard of finish. The close coordination and
collaborative approach adopted by Fugen Construction with all relevant stakeholders is appreciated .

The need for a new Haematology, Blood and Marrow Transplant (HBMT) Unit with 20-single rooms was identified as a key priority for St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney (SVHS). Commissioning of the new unit commenced and Fugen was engaged by SVHS to strip out the existing Level 9 Southern Ward and reconfigure the floor layout on the western face to accommodate:
• Twelve Pressurised Patient Rooms; Ten Positive Pressure and Two Negative Pressure
• Administration, Medication and Utility Rooms
Fugen Constructions comprehensive staging and methodology provided minimal disruption to the hospitals day-to-day operations and this played a large part in the client’s acceptance of Fugen’s tender.
Fugen diligently and methodically produced a prototype room early in the project for the stakeholders to view and offer up feedback. Through careful consideration of operational requirements and positioning of equipment, fixed furniture and finishes, Fugen was able to establish a bench mark of quality for all patient rooms. Roll out of all subsequent rooms occurred following sign off by the hospital and stakeholders.
