St Lukes Private Hospital

Potts Point, Sydney
$2.7 million
October 2019 - May 2020


Established in 1919, St Luke’s Private Hospital provides excellence in health and aged care for the community. Over the years the Hospital has expanded as the needs and requirements of staff and patients have grown. As such there was a need to amalgamate and integrate new mechanical services for the operating theatres that would enable St Lukes to become a modern and industry-leading facility. As well as this, the refurbishment of the hydropool was included as part of the works to run in conjunction with the major works program. TPS was initially engaged to create a business case and identify critical failures of the existing facility and engage consultants, architects, contractors and engineers to deliver the project within a live hospital environment.


Working in a live hospital environment, strict adherence to patient and staff wellbeing was critical. Noisy works were scheduled and communicated to the Hospital well in advance to ensure all stakeholders were informed of any potential inconvenience. Infection control of all new plant and equipment was a priority and was incorporated into the Project Management Plan. Care was taken to limit any disruption or shut down of base building services throughout the project.


TPS was initially engaged to assist St Luke’s Care to develop the business case and scope of works including design documentation to competitively tender the works. TPS was involved with the preparation of the tender documentation and contract (AS4902-2000) for the principal contractor. TPS’ service was extended to cover superintendent and contract administration services through to the handover and closing out of the project.


Involving Hospital staff in the process of design for the hydropool was rewarding when they saw the final project, giving them a sense of connection and ownership with it. This was also strategic as St Luke’s wanted a modern facility where patients felt calm and relaxed.

Delivering, installing, and commissioning six new mechanical chillers over the Christmas period with no downtime to staff or patients was an achievement that ensured the project’s success.
