Footscray Hospital

The new Footscray Hospital is Victoria’s largest ever health infrastructure investment. With an increase of nearly 200 beds, the new hospital will treat approximately 15,000 additional patients annually.
The Victorian Government has provided up to $1.5 billion to deliver a new Footscray Hospital – the largest ever health infrastructure investment in the state. Operated by Western Health, the hospital provides a range of inpatient and outpatient services.


The new Footscray Hospital will help meet the changing and growing health needs of Melbourne’s west, where the population is predicted to grow by 60 percent in the next 20 years.

The project comprises primarily of:

  • Two basement levels and an integrated ground floor across the full extent of the site
  • A four-level carpark
  • Two commercial buildings of up to five levels,
  • A five-level day procedure hospital fronting Ballarat Road, and the main emergency hospital of 12 storeys fronting Geelong Road.

The main emergency hospital requires a more rigorous analysis and design consideration to the new AS3600 – 2018 concrete standard to cater for Post Disaster Recovery. Both hospital buildings will feature V columns that extend between the ground floor and level two.



PSV provided the independent structural design review and certification. We sought input from the builder and their specialist subcontractors to make sure all detailing suited building requirements and was incorporated into the final design.

Additionally, we had very lean timeframes for construction deadlines. We carried out the peer review and structural certification for all aspects of the structural design, which included site retention, stability and gravity cases, all floor elements, feature precast facades, and structural steelwork.

Projects we’ve helped to keep safe.

With a reputation for independence and a proven track record, we’ve been fortunate to work on some of Victoria’s largest and most visible projects. Many more projects from PSV to be listed soon.
