Agree about the design, classy, modern and pleasing to the eye. It just shows what can be done by talented architects.

This is the embodiment of real wealth and progress in our city. Really, really impressive and a precinct we can be genuinely proud of that enhances the fabric of our society.

One thing for the RHC: it looks to be extremely successful with integrating with Royal Park - the landscaped areas which run along the tram tracks are always full of people and you often see patients and families wandering up into the main part of the Park.

GRanted too early to deem the new hospital a success overall, but in terms of fitting in with its surrounds it's top notch.

looking forward to seeing when they demo the old hospital and give it back to the park

Melbourne, Australia, 16 December 2011: Plenary Health Consortium today announced that it has achieved financial close with the Victorian Government for the delivery of the new $1 billion Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC) Project.

Plenary Group Principal, Mr John O'Rourke said the consortium would now devote its resources to ensuring it completed a truly world class facility, capable of taking its place on the international stage.

The VCCC Project will provide a purpose-built facility for cancer in Parkville including a new home for the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, some cancer-related research space for Melbourne Health, some new cancer-related clinical facilities at The Royal Melbourne Hospital and space for cancer-related research from The University of Melbourne.

Plenary Health consortium consists of:

Plenary Group - sponsor, financial arranger and equity investor
Grocon/PCL construction joint venture - design/construction
Honeywell - facilities management services (over a 25 year contracted period)

The architectural design team is made up of Design Inc and Silver Thomas Hanley in partnership with McBride Charles Ryan.

Plenary Health consortium committed design resources early in the process to ensure a major architectural statement could be made in line with Melbourne's reputation for design excellence.

The internal design will create an environment where cancer patients feel welcome and where the building partners have a collaborative work environment for world-leading research, education and clinical activities.

The 130,000 sqm facility will be built over 13 levels and includes 2 bridge links to The Royal Melbourne Hospital where Plenary Health will deliver a further 12,000 sqm of extensions and refurbishment.

The Grocon/PCL joint venture combines PCL's international experience as Canada’s largest construction company, with the Grocon's local track record for delivering some of Melbourne’s most iconic buildings.

Plenary Health and PCL have a successful working partnership in Canada where they currently have 5 hospital PPPs, valued at some $3 billion, under development.

The VCCC Project will be financed through a fully underwritten debt and equity package. Of note, Australian superannuation funds are investing both debt and equity in the project.

The banking group brought together to finance the project is made up of National Australia Bank Limited, Export Development Canada, Mizuho Corporate Bank Ltd, The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, United Overseas Bank Limited, BOS International (Australia) Limited, Industry Funds Management Pty Ltd, H.E.S.T Australia Limited and CARE Super Pty Ltd.
