(2) What is the projected budget for the SPIRE Centre project.
(3) When will the SPIRE Centre open.
(4) When was it originally planned to open.
(5) What are the reasons for the delay.
(6) When did the Health Directorate become aware of the delays.
(7) When did the Directorate advise the Minister of the delays.
Ms Fitzharris: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:
(1) Construction of the Surgical Procedures, Interventional Radiology and Emergency (SPIRE) Centre is expected to begin in 2020.
(2) The Government has estimated a total capital investment of $500 million for the delivery of SPIRE.
(3) ACT Health have undertaken detailed planning over the last year, and SPIRE is expected to be completed in 2023-24.
(4) The ACT Government said in 2016 that SPIRE was planned to open in 2022-23. This was prior to any feasibility, planning and early design works being undertaken.
(5) SPIRE is a major infrastructure project and as the feasibility and early planning has developed for the SPIRE project, so has the anticipated completion timeframe.
(6) Consistent with contemporary practice for early project planning, timeframes for delivery are updated at key milestones. ACT Health’s estimate for completion of SPIRE was internally updated to 2023-24 in April 2017 as a result of early planning.
(7) ACT Health provided me with the draft expected timeframes for delivery of SPIRE. These timeframes were provided subject to development of a detailed business case in 2018.
