Project Details:

Lahey was engaged in the design, development and construction of a Mental Health Unit at Gosford Hospital.

As required by the client, this 30-bed project required considerable user group coordination so that project stakeholders could collaborate on design and outcomes.

This was an in-depth process and involved more than 100 stakeholders. Over 270 potential changes to the design arising from this process were investigated and priced as a result.

Throughout the project, we were proactive in seeking clarification of potential design changes on a weekly basis. As different contractors were engaged throughout different stages, considerable updates to project documentation were required. Lahey coordinated this process to ensure the accuracy and consistency of project documentation from end-to-end.
