Corrs lends a hand in $135 million hospital expansion
Corrs Chambers Westgarth has scored another major project helping Victoria as it advised the state government on the $135m Casey Hospital expansion project, which recently achieved financial close.

Pinsent Masons recently confirmed acting for Watpac, which is part of the Plenary Health consortium, on the project.  The consortium will construct and maintain the hospital’s expansion, which involves adding 160 new beds, an intensive care unit, six operating theatres, and educational and training facilities for Monash University.

The Corrs team was led by partner David Warren and senior associate Paul Brickley.

“Expansions of projects developed under PPP arrangements present particular issues, from the limitations imposed by the existing commercial arrangements and the additional stakeholders whose interests must be considered, to the challenges associated with undertaking work in and around an operational facility,” said Warren, who heads the firm’s projects group.

The project demonstrates the viability of the public–private partnership procurement model, Corrs said. The firm is also acting for Victoria on the $300m expansion project of the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre and for the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads on the $600m Gold Coast Light Rail Stage 2.
