A consortium consisting of Ssangyong Engineering & Construction (Ssangyong E&C), Daewoo Engineering & Construction (Daewoo E&C) and Singapore-based Koh Brothers Building & Civil Engineering Contractor has won the Woodlands Health Campus project worth U$740 Million.
With 246,000㎡ of the total ground floor area, the Woodlands Health Campus (WHC), the first smart hospital in Singapore, will comprise an acute hospital, a community hospital, specialist outpatient clinics and a nursing home, connecting the four medical facilities with information and Communication technology (ICT). The 1,800-bed integrated facility will be completed progressively by 2022.
WHC aims to renovate the way of healthcare by breaking organizational and process boundaries, allowing patients to enjoy seamless accessibility across the acute, intermediate and community care settings. WHC will achieve the goal by leveraging smart technologies and intuitive design to not only enhance care within the hospital, but extend the reach of healthcare professionals into the community.
A Spokesperson for the consortium led by Ssangyong E&C said, “Throughout the whole tender process, we presented the importance of integration among parties for synergy, top-notch safety management, provision for design changes and proposed Mobile Web Application of Information management including Building Information Modelling (BIM) data to meet the high standards expected of a public healthcare development project. As a result, we came up with the optimal design and methodology.”
The consortium have been working on the project since December 2016 and only four consortiums including a consortium led by Japanese builder were shortlisted at the PQ stage. On 5 March, the consortium led by Korean builders officially received the Letter of Acceptance to be the main contractor for the project.
