Allens acts for part of winning consortium for Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre
19 December 2011
Allens Arthur Robinson (Allens) has acted for global technologies inventor and manufacturer Honeywell in its successful bid as part of a consortium to build the $1 billion Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre.
The Victorian Government awarded the Plenary Health consortium, consisting of Honeywell, the Plenary Group, Grocon and PCL, the right to build the world-class cancer centre. Honeywell will be the facilities and maintenance manager of the centre. Financial close was achieved last week.
The centre will span two sites in Parkville, an inner suburb of Melbourne, and will include 160 overnight inpatient cancer beds, a 42-bed capacity Intensive Care Unit and a dedicated space to house an estimated 1200 cancer researchers.
Allens Partner Anthony Arrow and Senior Associate David Donnelly led the team on the matter. Mr Donnelly said it was great to be involved in a project of such importance to Honeywell and for the State of Victoria.
'This project is estimated to create about 500 new full-time equivalent jobs during construction before becoming a world hub for cancer research and treatment on completion,' Mr Arrow said.
'Allens has been involved in the biggest PPP project in the region over the past few years, including the New Royal Adelaide Hospital PPP, the Gold Coast Rapid Transit PPP and the Single LEAP Phase 2 PPP.'
'Our involvement in the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre projects comes soon after the firm topped the Infrastructure Journal global table for 2011 for involvement in infrastructure projects in the social and defence sectors.'
