Hansen Yuncken

The next phase of the landmark Randwick Health & Innovation Precinct is set to take flight, with Hansen Yuncken part of the consortium awarded the contract to deliver the $600 million UNSW Sydney’s Health Translation Hub project.

Building on more than 60 years of teaching hospital affiliations, the Health Translation Hub realises the university’s long-term aspiration to work in close partnership with the Randwick precinct.

Hansen Yuncken is design and construction lead for the Plenary Health consortium contracted to finance, design, develop and manage the Health Translation Hub. It comprises Plenary Group as developer, investor, development and asset manager and co-owner; ISPT, supported by HESTA and UniSuper, as majority investor and co-owner; and Architectus as lead architect.

The Health Translation Hub will bring together educational and medical researchers, clinicians, educators, industry partners and public health officials to drive excellence and support the rapid translation of innovative research and education into improved patient care and better community health outcomes.

Hansen Yuncken Chairman David Beslich is delighted at the opportunity to deliver this state of the art, community focused health hub.

“Hansen Yuncken has a legacy of construction innovation, sustainability and design excellence, and together with our partners UNSW and Plenary have for this project a strong focus on the future of education and the important role in transforming communities. I’m excited for this major opportunity in NSW adding to our portfolio of projects that contribute toward the future of health and medical research facilities across Australia.”

The Health Translation Hub will include:

  • Collaborative, purpose built coworking spaces for researchers, educators, and industry partners to connect

  • Education, training and research rooms

  • Clinical schools for Women’s and Children’s Health, Psychiatry and Prince of Wales Hospital

  • Ambulatory care clinics

  • Support facilities including retail premises

  • Over 2,500m2 of publicly accessible open space for staff, students, patients and the community

Comprehensive planning is underway ahead of construction scheduled to begin in 2023.
