∞ The Royal Eye and Ear Hospital is Australia’s largest specialist eye, ear, nose and throat hospital, treating about 270,000 patients a year. It is an important component of the health system, delivering more than half of Victoria’s public general ear surgery and 90 per cent of the State’s specialist eye surgery.
Nuvo Group was chosen by a specialist panel led by the Department of Health & Human Services to participate in the Hospital redevelopment. The project was jointly funded by the Victorian and Commonwealth governments and the hospital. Works included the demolition of the existing buildings between the two 10-storey tower blocks, to allow construction of a connecting link building with fi ve fully-integrated floors.
Clinical services were consolidated on lower levels to provide major improvements in emergency, operating theatre, medical imaging and specialist clinics, as well as inpatient wards and new same-day recovery areas.

A number of submains were required to be connected into critical facilities and some shutdowns were carried out with no impact on the operation of the hospital. Due the excellent understanding of the hospitals requirements and touch points, the new submain connections did not pose any problems to the team, and the Critical Works Plan implemented minimised risks.
The careful staging of works reduced the impact on the day-to-day operations of the hospital as the redevelopment proceeded. During the initial phase of the project, Nuvo Group carried out detailed analysis, scheduling and procurement functions in conjunction with the Specialist Equipment Suppliers to ensure works complied with health requirements and existing services.
Nuvo Group was also in charge of the preparation of required shop drawings, review of the design for ‘Buildability’ and possible optimisation of installation, review of the cable reticulation routes and support systems with regard to possible enhancements, and design of cable support systems including co-ordination with building structural elements to support the construction program and construction crew parallel operations.
The works will help RVEEH to better meet future demand for age-related eye and ear conditions as Victoria’s population ages. Moreover, will enable the hospital to continue to provide quality State-wide services.
Daryl Garlick Construction Manager HY – RVEEH Redevelopment said “It has been a very positive experience working with a professional company that completes the job on time and cooperates to ensure the works are carried out in accordance to specifi cations, standards and site safety protocols.
They have been an excellent asset in this project”.
