New posters, featuring inspiring quotes from community members, have been revealed in the Westmead Redevelopment project office.
Westmead Redevelopment director of redesign and transformation Carla Edwards said the boards were an eye-catching reminder of the importance of the project and the community’s involvement.
“We want to show off this feedback with all of our visitors,” she said.
“It’s also a great reminder to our project team, that as we hold our meetings, our community members are looking on. What motivation to get it right!”
Hundreds of community members, including people from diverse backgrounds, have been involved in project user groups, community events and focus groups.
Carla said: “community members are working hand-in-hand with us. They are co-designing our physical spaces, like the front entry to the new hospital building. They are also providing crucial input into the redesign of many of our health services, a process we describe as reviewing our models of care.”
Poster quotes include words from a local resident, Westmead Redevelopment consumers, patients in newly refurbished spaces, and workshop participants from the Arts and Culture Strategy consultation process.
Staff from Westmead Hospital and The Children’s Hospital at Westmead are welcome to visit the project office to view these posters. Please contact us [insert link to contact us tab on web] to arrange a time.

They are a reflection that our consumers’ input is both valued and acted on in our design development.Health Infrastructure director project delivery Matt Vizard
On any Multiplex project community feedback is at the centre of the design and construction process. It is a partnership from start to end. These posters remind us to keep checking in with our community, at every stage of the project.Multiplex Australasia regional director Brendan Sweeney
Community feedback is crucial to the success of any construction project, let alone one on the scale and complexity of Westmead. Consumers and the broader community provide insight and contribution from their own experiences and needs. Their words are meaningful and shape the project. Working directly with consumers and the stakeholders puts into perspective the importance of the redevelopment - we are all contributing to it as a community.PwC project manager Matthew Curnow
