Allens advises on $1.5bn New Footscray Hospital

Healthcare Infrastructure & Transport

Allens has advised Multiplex on the successful close of the $1.5 billion New Footscray Hospital Project.

The New Footscray Hospital is a critical community asset that will help address the increasing demand from Melbourne’s booming western suburbs. 

Partner David Donnelly, who led the Allens team, said the result was particularly pleasing given the procurement process spanned multiple lockdowns and tackled a number of market challenges. 

'From a contracting perspective, the project moves the market on a number of risks, and that is a testament to a lot of hard work and dialogue through the process,' he said.

Mr Donnelly - who also led the Allens team that advised Plenary Health on the successful close of the Casey Hospital Expansion Project and is currently advising Multiplex on their bid for the Frankston Hospital Redevelopment Project - added that there has been a lot of positive momentum in the health sector, which welcomed the broader focus in the current pipeline.
