Ground broken at Lang Walker AO Medical Research Building – Macarthur

Celebrating the commencement of RCC’s 75th health project in NSW. 

Works are officially underway at Lang Walker AO Medical Research Building – a new state-of-the-art facility that will put south western Sydney at the forefront of medical research. 

NSW Premier Chris Minns, Health Minister Ryan Park, Minister for Medical Research and Aboriginal Affairs, David Harris, Member for Campbelltown, Greg Warren and special guests joined Grant D’Arcy, General Manager – Sydney and Major Projects to break ground.

Once completed, researchers and clinicians will have access to the latest research technologies, laboratories and collaboration spaces. This expertise will enhance community access to clinical trials, serve local health needs and lead research of national significance and global impact. 

“This facility will create fantastic opportunities to develop new treatments, therapies and look for innovative methods for treating patients in our healthcare system.” Mr Park said. 

Since 1976, RCC has delivered 74 health projects across NSW. Our team of delivery experts will lead the design, construction and integrated fit-out of this vital research and health infrastructure. Early planning works will maintain the seamless operations of neighbouring Campbelltown Hospital and Emergency Department and Macarthur Clinical School.

We look forward to partnering with Western Sydney University, South Western Sydney Local Health District, the Ingham Institute for Applied Medical Research and UNSW to deliver infrastructure that will serve local Australian communities and beyond.
