Cabrini Hospital Malvern Plant Re-Location

Nuvo Group has been a trusted supplier and partner to Cabrini Health for over eight years, working on their major facilities that deliver a comprehensive range of health services.

Nuvo Group was engaged as the main electrical contractor to house new and relocated engineering services plant and equipment for Cabrini hospital in Malvern — a 508-bed acute care hospital offering a wide range of services including coronary care, day procedures, day oncology, emergency care, hospital-in-the-home, intensive care, maternity, paediatric care, medical imaging and pathology.

The project involved the installation and commissioning of new equipment such as chillers and boilers before existing services — the hospital’s HVAC and mechanical systems, generators, and electrical and fire sprinkler systems — were transferred across,. The Building Management and Controls System additionally needed to be relocated and commissioned, to ensure optimal operational performance across the entire facility.

Works sequencing and planning was fundamental for the project, to ensure that there was no disruption to the live plantroom — and ultimately, to the hospital’s ongoing service delivery and patient care — during relocation.

Kevin Wilson, Operations Manager Victoria for A.G. Coombs Pty Ltd (Projects) said, “Nuvo Group is an excellent operator in their field and both the management team and the electricians comprehensively understand the needs of operational hospitals and work seamlessly with us to deliver high quality and cost effective maintenance outcomes.”
