John Holland, a subsidiary of Leighton Holdings, has secured a contract from the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) to deliver the $365m Royal Hobart Hospital redevelopment project in Tasmania, Australia.

John Holland will deliver the project under a managing contractor (MC) relationship model in joint venture with Fairbrother.

The project will be delivered in a Brownfield environment across two separable portions including construction over an operating facility.

As per the deal, John Holland will construct a new ten-storey building of two towers.

The building will house operating theatres, women’s clinics, endoscopy, paediatrics, maternity and mental health facilities.

The project will also include the refurbishment of existing clinical areas and site infrastructure upgrades.

Phase one of the MC’s services, which includes the detailed design and establishment of the GCS, is scheduled to start later in September 2013 while the second phase of construction works are expected to be completed in June 2017.

"John Holland will deliver the project under a MC relationship model in joint venture with Fairbrother."

Leighton Holdings chief executive officer Hamish Tyrwhitt said that the project would enhance health services currently available in Tasmania.

"Over the years John Holland has been a part of the delivery of major building works in Tasmania including the completed Medical Science Building Stages 1 and 2, Risdon Prison Expansion, and it is currently constructing the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies," Tyrwhitt said.

The Royal Hobart Hospital is Tasmania’s largest hospital and the major teaching hospital of the University of Tasmania.

The main entrance of the hospital had undergone construction for a new underground emergency department and surrounding construction is ongoing.

Fairbrother chief executive officer Craig Edmunds said: "The Royal Hobart Hospital Redevelopment is a landmark project in our state’s history and it promises to deliver employment and better healthcare outcomes for Tasmanians."
