Schiavello Construction was engaged as part of a competitive tender process to upgrade their state-of-the-art facilities at North Ryde and construct a new purpose-built clinic at Tuggerah. The works were part of a broader vision to expand their specialist veterinary services and provide the best quality of life and care for animals.

Schiavello worked closely with SASH and BigCity Design to deliver the project within a tight budget and strict time frame so it was ready for launch.

North Ryde

Schiavello expanded SASH’s existing facilities at North Ryde. The highly technical 1000sqm fit-out was completed in less than nine months and consisted of two operating theatres, specialist consulting areas and a suite of treatment rooms, including dentistry, chemotherapy, ophthalmology and imaging.

The scope of works included new partitions, ceilings, floor and wall coverings, electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, fire services and provision of new joinery, workstations, loose furniture, fixtures fittings and equipment and associated structural works.


SASH’s purpose-built Central Coast hospital offers specialist services to patients from the Central Coast, Newcastle, Hunter Valley and beyond.
