Royal Prince Alfred Hospital Redevelopment
During the 2019 election the NSW State Government announced a $750m commitment to redevelop the Royal Prince Alfred (RPA) Hospital. The investment will facilitate a major expansion of the Hospital, with key targets laid out by the Clinical Services Plan, including 275 overnight beds, 75 additional ED bays and 18 additional operating theatres.
In addition to the delivery of the first stage of the expansion, the project involved setting out key principles for the redevelopment for the hospital and design of a long-term Masterplan. The work involved a wide range of disciplines including architects, civil, electrical, structural, and mechanical engineering, logistics, heritage, aviation, sustainability, traffic and transport.
SCT Consulting were commissioned by Health Infrastructure to act as the Transport, Traffic and Parking consultants for the Pre-Planning phase, and subsequently on the Stage 1 schematic design and SSDA.
A key outcome was the development of a bespoke multi-modal precinct transport model that could inform a wide range of possible scenarios, including improved public transport options and the positive impact on parking demand. Our team advocated for transport and traffic policy changes which would benefit the precinct as well as providing key advice to the design team during the Precinct Planning and Schematic Design phases.
SCT Consulting worked efficiently and to a high standard. The team were very involved with all stakeholders and allocated the right people to each task, which is a key strength of the organisation.
