The new purpose-built health campus is the hub for health services in the Great Southern region, providing the region’s 55,000 residents with improved services.

TBH was engaged to:
- Develop the state’s project delivery programme
- Review the monthly submission of the D&C contractor’s design and construction programme
The state’s project delivery program was developed in consultation with the project team. This programme was then handed over to the project team to manage. TBH provided periodic reviews, advice and assistance with regard to the ongoing maintenance of this programme.
The D&C contractor submitted an updated monthly program in accordance with the requirements of the head contract. TBH reviewed this programme and provided a summary level report on issues.
