Princess Margaret Hospital
RJV have been appointed to carry out demolition and remediation works at the former Princess Margaret Hospital Site on behalf of the Western Australian State Government via DevelopmentWA.
- Bulk earthworks
The former 35,000m2 hospital site has a rich history with significant buildings being preserved, including Godfrey House and the former Multi-Faith Chapel.
The management and protection of these structures and those within the surrounding neighbourhood is one of the projects key deliverables.
The project involves removal of hazardous materials from all buildings and completion of major demolition of these, and the below ground remediation works within a built up residential/commercial area.
Extensive planning for the demolition has included the formation of a community reference group, which will provide feedback to DevelopmentWA throughout the demolition process.
RJV are working closely with the local aboriginal community in the areas of employment and business engagement.
The success of our strategies in providing long term employment and business relationships with the aboriginal community will be a key factor in the overall success of the project once completed.
Recycling is another key measurable that will define success of this project, with a targeted 96% of reusable materials to be recycled.
Concrete is being processed off site and is planned for use in the State Governments Roads to Reuse program. Other materials such as steel, timber, bricks, and glass are to be re-used for several different applications off site. Our processes are compliant with the Green Building Council – Green Star Construction & Demolition Waste Reporting Criteria.
The site will become part of the iconic Subi East precinct, which encompasses Subiaco Oval, Bob Hawke College and Mueller Park, and the new inner-city village that will deliver more than 2,000 new dwellings over the next decade.
RJV are proud to be associated with the project and look forward to a successful delivery for our client and the wider Subiaco community.
