In 2009, South Australia Health received funding from the Commonwealth Health and Hospital Funds for the delivery of a Health and Medical Research Institute ‘Flagship’ Research Facility (SAHMRI).
The SAHMRI, under construction adjacent to the new Royal Adelaide Hospital, will create a world class precinct of medical research and clinical application, with state-of-the-art laboratories and purpose built equipment.
To ensure the building design and principles of the project are consistent with the new hospital adjacent, the DPTI undertook a project risk management role, engaging RCP for expert programming advice.
In this capacity, RCP is reviewing the Managing Contractor’s project programmes, providing advice on the critical path, contingency and implications of potential constraints. RCP is also attending meetings with the design team and managing contractor to provide advice and report on construction status.
