Arup has been appointed by the Hong Kong Hospital Authority to provide project management consultancy services for two major hospital developments – the New Acute Hospital (NAH) and the redevelopment of the Prince of Wales Hospital (PWH).
These are the two largest projects under the Hong Kong government’s 10-year Hospital Development Plan to cope with the growing and ageing population.
Arup’s Programme and Project Management team will lead and manage the projects from planning to execution while aligning all stakeholders with the programme vision and requirements.
The NAH, to be built in the Kai Tak Development Area with a construction floor area (CFA) of 500,000m2, will be the largest hospital in Hong Kong. This 8-year project includes five buildings, delivering a comprehensive range of acute secondary and tertiary hospital services, with modern service models incorporating advanced technology and facilities. This hospital will house 2,400 beds, 32 operating theatres, a designated trauma centre, providing accident and emergency, clinical, ambulatory and rehabilitation services. The facilities will also include a community health centre, helipad, public waterfront promenade with link bridges and subways.
The PWH redevelopment will group the currently scattered clinical services to enhance accessibility while providing additional space for operational needs and service developments. A regional acute hospital, PWH provides a wide range of secondary and tertiary services for the residents in the New Territories East Cluster as well as highly specialised quaternary services for patients from other areas. It is also the teaching hospital for the Faculty of Medicine, the Chinese University of Hong Kong. The entire redevelopment will comprise 1,650 in-patient and day beds in a CFA of 140,750m2. We will be delivering the In-patient Extension Block with 1,200 beds to be built in ten years.
