Acute Services Building wins IPA Project of the Year Award


The Prince of Wales Hospital Acute Services Building (ASB) has won Project of the Year at the Infrastructure Partnerships Australia (IPA) 2024 National Infrastructure Awards, held in Melbourne.  
The IPA’s National Infrastructure Awards highlight excellence in the Australian infrastructure sector and celebrate outstanding projects and achievements through public-private collaboration.
The ASB represents the first stage of the Randwick Campus Redevelopment, and was the catalyst project for expansion of the world-class health, research and education facilities within the Randwick Health & Innovation Precinct
Health Infrastrcture, together with South Eastern Sydney Local Health District, UNSW and a range of other planning and construction partners, delivered a state-of-the-art facility that now supports new and innovative approaches to clinical services, placing the patient experience at the centre of the healthcare experience.

Health Infrastructure Chief Executive, Rebecca Wark, accepted the award on behalf of the broader project team and stakeholders, and highlighted the role of collaboration in delivering such a complex project.

"At the heart of the project’s success, and what makes it so special, is collaboration. The project commenced in 2015 with visionary master planning for the site and brought together four major hospitals, UNSW and esteemed research centres, to align priorities and infrastructure aspirations for the precinct. 

"The project was also shaped by extensive engagement with clinicians, consumers and the community and built positive relationships from the project’s early inception," Rebecca said.

"Congratulations to everyone who has been involved in the development of this outstanding building, which delivers state-of-the-art healthcare to our Randwick community," said Prince of Wales Hospital General Manager, Jennie Barry.   

The delivery of the ASB was the first major milestone for the broader Randwick Campus Redevelopment project, which will see more than $1.5 billion invested into the Randwick Hospitals Campus.
