This notification provides information on market sounding activity and anticipated procurement activity for a building contractor for the new Women’s and Children’s Hospital (nWCH).

A Managing Contractor procurement model is proposed for the delivery of the nWCH project. The engagement of a Managing Contractor will commence with an open Expression of Interest (EOI) in July 2021, followed by a Request for Tender (RFT) to shortlisted respondents.

In preparation for the procurement of a Managing Contractor, the Department of Infrastructure and Transport has commenced a market sounding process.

The market sounding was released on 25 June 2021 to select General Building Contractors (GBCs) with a track record in the delivery of major public health infrastructure projects valued at $500m+. Market Sounding responses from the select GBCs are due on 2 July 2021. Participation in the market sounding will not be a prerequisite to participating in the future procurement process.

A preliminary project program providing indicative durations for the nWCH project managing contractor procurement process is outlined in the table below:
