Development has commenced on the next segment of South Australia’s Health and Biomedical Precinct, a $500 million project expected to support 1,000 construction jobs throughout its establishment.


The Australian Bragg Centre will be a 12-storey project that will house world-leading and lifesaving proton therapy cancer treatment.


Lendlease is the consortium that will build the landmark development and research facility, which will subsequently be owned by SA developer Commercial and General.


The project, known as “SAHMRI 2”, has received joint funding from both the South Australia and Federal Governments.


The Australian Bragg Centre is predicted to be completed in late 2023, with the first patients arriving approximately 18 months later.


When in full operation, it is assessed that as many as 600-700 patients will be able to be treated at the facility every year – with a predicted half being children and young adults.


Steven Marshall, South Australia’s Premier, said this project will further strengthen South Australia’s international credentials and create significant economic stimulus and jobs in the aftermath of COVID-19.


“This significant development will put SA on the map as a pioneer in world-leading, lifesaving proton therapy cancer treatment,” Mr Marshall said.


“It will also provide the state’s building industry with significant economic stimulus as we emerge from the greatest economic challenge of our time, supporting as many as 1,000 jobs and generating an estimated $1 billion in economic activity during the construction phase.


“We are pleased to support this project and look forward to it coming to fruition as a new, iconic landmark along North Terrace.”


The South Australian Government has delivered $47.4 million towards the project, including a $10.6 million grant to aid in the planning and development phase, as well as $36.8 million to relocate the Train Control Centre from North Terrace to Dry Creek.


Coupled with this state funding, the project is also reinforced by a $68 million grant from the Federal Government.


SA Minister for Health and Wellbeing, Stephen Wade, commented the state-of-the-art facility will provide world-class care, closer to home for many Australians.


“South Australians, and people throughout the nation, will no longer need to go overseas to get the care they need,”.


“This landmark new facility will further establish the Precinct as one of the pre-eminent health care and research hubs in the southern hemisphere.”
