New Royal Adelaide Hospital

SITE  |  North Terrace, Adelaide SA

CLIENT   Hansen Yunken Leighton Contractors (HYLC)

CONSTRUCTION VALUE  |  >$2.1 billion

PROJECT PERIOD  |  2009-2018

The new Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH) project is an example of a complex, large-scale investigation comprised of various phases of environmental investigations, assessment, and remediation.

Spanning the equivalent of 3 city blocks, the world-class RAH is the largest hospital ever undertaken in Australia, and the single largest infrastructure project in South Australia’s history.

FMG Engineering was engaged to design and implement a soil remediation strategy for the site. In order to conduct these works, a Remediation Management Plan (RMP) was produced during the tender phase. Several iterations and further investigations of the RAH site were conducted prior to the soil remediation works in order to address the identified data gaps and confirm the remedial strategy provided in the RMP.

The main construction phase suffered no lost time due to contamination.
