Princess Margaret Hospital
RJV were 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 was one of the project’s key deliverables.
The project involved 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 included the formation of a community reference group, which provided feedback to DevelopmentWA throughout the demolition process.
RJV worked 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 were a key factor in the overall success of the project.
Recycling was another key measurable, with a targeted 96% of reusable materials to be recycled which was exceeded with 99% of materials recycled.
Concrete was 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 2,700 new dwellings over the next decade.
