Australian construction contractor Cimic Group has won a deal to act as management contractor for stage one of the new US$1.2 billion Bundaberg Hospital in Queensland, Australia.

CPB Contractors will lead the design phase of the project, which involves the design of a new six-storey hospital for acute, medical, surgical and mental health services, as well as emergency, clinical support services and associated infrastructure.

CPB Contractors, a subsidiary of Cimic Group which is itself owned by German construction giant Hochtief, may then follow with the construction phase of the project.

The $1.2 billion hospital is part of the Queensland government’s $9.8 billion Queensland Health and Hospitals Plan.

Cimic Group executive chairman Juan Santamaria said, “CPB Contractors has extensive experience in the delivery of state-of-the-art health infrastructure and facilities, and we’re pleased to be selected for construction of this new hospital for Bundaberg.

“This is an important project that will provide the local community with a future-proofed modern health facility to meet their needs, improving access to emergency, surgical, paediatric and mental health facilities. We will work with Queensland’s health system to deliver an innovative, modern and flexible design.”

CPB Contractors managing director Jason Spears said, “CPB Contractors has a deep affinity with Bundaberg and the Wide Bay-Burnett region and understands new Bundaberg Hospital’s crucial role as a world-class health care hub.

“The project will employ a peak workforce of approximately 500 people and generate more than 2,500 local jobs during construction, enhancing local capability through key opportunities in Indigenous employment, procurement, apprenticeships and traineeships.”

The new Bundaberg Hospital is expected to be completed in the second half of 2027, weather and construction conditions permitting.
