Schiavello Construction was engaged as part of a competitive tender process to construct a new purpose-built clinic at Tuggerah and upgrade their state-of-the-art facilities at North Ryde. 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.


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

The fit-out of the two level facility 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 steel stair case structural works.

The hospital incorporates two surgeries, procedure room, patient wards, emergency facility, CT, ultrasound, radiology, and endoscopy. The project was fast-tracked, with a fixed deadline for project delivery. Schiavello worked with BigCity Design to coordinate the installation of the specialist equipment to ensure the construction activities were completed on time and critical launch date achieved.

North Ryde

Schiavello also expanded SASH’s existing facilities at North Ryde. The highly technical 1000sqm fit-out was completed in less than nine months.
