The project aims to provide fit-for-purpose, contemporary healthcare facilities as part of a comprehensive infrastructure solution intended to address deficiencies around condition and functionality of priority Joint Health Command facilities, providing primary health and associated health care to Australian Defence Force personnel around Australia.


The works involved include construction services for a range of new build and refurbishment of existing health centre solutions.  It will include demolition of some existing health facilities. 


The typical spatial requirements for each health centre include: entry, administration, primary health care, inpatient unit (at some sites), pharmacy, mental health, physiotherapy, dental, support areas and associated external inground civil engineering, landscaping, carpark and all necessary civil remediation works. 


IMPORTANT: Applicants are asked to register interest in each site that they are interested in. The assessment and shortlisting will be undertaken on a site-by-site basis by separate assessment teams. Separate stand-alone compliant responses with complete schedules are required for each site the Applicant is responding to. Opportunities to package sites may be offered after individual site evaluation in the request for tender phase. The Commonwealth will award individual contracts for each site if this is the best value for money solution.
