CETEC consultants are going to Lae in Papua New Guinea next week. They will be conducting hazardous materials audits on a large number of existing buildings at the ANGAU Memorial Hospital redevelopment site. HASSELL, CETEC's client is a member of the specialist architectural and health planning consortia that has been charged with preparing a Health Services and Facilities Master Plan for the project.
Hazardous materials audits provide necessary information for risk identification required for planning purposes before the demolition, redevelopment and construction phases. The small team going to PNG are looking forward to their visit and involvement in this major project.
Background about the ANGAU Memorial Hospital redevelopment
Australia and Papua New Guinea have agreed to co-fund the redevelopment of the hospital through the Australia-PNG Joint Understanding on Further Bilateral Cooperation on Health, Education, and Law and Order, signed in July 2013. The redevelopment of the ANGAU Memorial Hospital will also be the largest health infrastructure project since PNG’s independence.
The master planning process will include consultations with all hospital stakeholders, an assessment of existing clinical and non-clinical services and facilities, and an analysis of needs and gaps in services and facilities. It will recommend a comprehensive site plan for the redevelopment and a phased demolition and construction program. Construction will be staged in order to maintain full operation of current hospital services.
The major construction works are likely to occur in 2016/17.
