Health Infrastructure New South Wales has selected Jacobs for designing a new mental health facility in Western Sydney, Australia.

As part of the contract, Jacobs will provide architectural design and health planning services for the new health facility.

The project consists of a ten-storey, contemporary integrated mental health complex (IMHC) in the Westmead Health Precinct.

The A$334m ($224m) project was announced by the New South Wales government last year, with the complex anticipated to open in 2026.

Once completed, the complex will feature acute mental health beds, including beds for older persons, adults, adolescents, and children, as well as people living with eating disorders.

Furthermore, the complex will have sub and non-acute mental health beds, mental health assessment areas, and mental health intensive care and high-dependency units.

Upon completion, the building is expected to become one of the tallest integrated mental health facilities in the world.

Jacobs Asia Pacific and Middle East general manager Keith Lawson said: “This appointment builds on our recent experience delivering both mental health facilities and multi-story hospital projects.

“Working with stakeholders and the community in one of the fastest growing communities in Australia, we’re creating a purpose-built integrated mental health facility incorporating the latest thinking and models of care to meet the demand for mental health services.”

Recently, the company announced Alexandra Hospital Redevelopment Project in Singapore.
