Lendlease Site Visit – Randwick Hospital

Dec 21, 2020

Team 51 were given the amazing opportunity to visit the Lendlease site for the upgrade to Randwick Hospital on Thursday 10th December.

 The NSW Government is partnering with UNSW Sydney to deliver the Integrated Acute Services Building (ASB); the first stage of the Randwick Campus Redevelopment and the catalyst project for expanding the world-class health, research and education facilities at the Randwick precinct. Lendlease has been awarded the contract to deliver the Integrated Acute Services Building as part of Stage 1.

 The afternoon started with a presentation from Stakeholder Engagement Manager, Lauren Hosking, who gave an overview of Lendlease and the history of the organisation. This included an overview of some of Lendlease’s most iconic projects. We were then lucky enough to be given a guided tour by Senior Site Manager, Steve Polsen, who also shared his impressive journey of progression through Lendlease over the years. His story was inspirational and highlights that hard work including a great work ethic, pride in his quality of work and dedication, is a formula for success. We got to see the importance of large scale project planning and execution including the logistics involved on such a large construction site. We saw Lendlease’s commitment to safety including a ‘stop work’ on the cranes due to the wind speed!

A huge thank you to Lendlease for such an educational and inspirational afternoon.
