Australian Health Project Reaches New Milestone

First look at designs for Royal Prince Alfred Hospital - Stage 1 Redevelopment project

The project to redevelop the Royal Prince Alfred (RPA) Hospital in Sydney, Australia, has hit a new milestone with the release of the concept designs for the $510 million (AUD $750 million) redevelopment.

The New South Wales Government and Health Infrastructure recently released the designs as part of the communication consultation process leading to the State Significant Development application process for the project.

The designs have been developed by a Jacobs, Bates Smart and Neeson Murcutt + Neille collaborative design team to deliver the capacity required to meet the growing demand for clinical services at RPA Hospital.

In what has been described by the New South Wales Premier Dominic Perottet as “the most significant investment in RPA’s 140-year history,” the redevelopment will deliver a new hospital building and refurbishment of a number of existing spaces, including more adult inpatient beds and expanded emergency department, intensive care unit, medical imaging services, operating theaters, and maternity, birthing and neonatal services.

Jacobs was appointed Lead Architect on the project in 2021. The team is working with Bates Smart and Neeson Murcutt + Neille who were the winners of a competitive design process focused on public realm and Design Excellence to deliver the design and health planning services for the project.
