WSP was appointed for civil, structural and wet services for the new Modderfontein Private Hospital. Scope of works included detailed design to Stage six engineering procurement and construction contracts.
The hospital is a 240-bed, three-storey development offering medical, surgical, day and paediatric wards, general and cardiac intensive care units, high-care, labour, maternity and neonatal intensive care units.
The hospital is owned by Busamed, one of South Africa’s first black-owned healthcare groups. To address the demand for medical facilities in the country, the group secured ZAR 1 billion to build four new private hospitals in the Western Cape, Free State and Gauteng. Our client appointed us to provide civil, structural and building services for all four new private hospitals. The private hospitals are being developed in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Harrismith and Bloemfontein.
