Eagle secures $7.1m order for SCUH
In a statement issued today, Alan Jones, Managing Director of Eagle Lighting Australia confirmed that they had secured the order for the Sunshine Coast University Hospital (SCUH) in Queensland. "The health and aged care segments have always been a considerable strength and of vital importance to ELA over the last 43 years".
Alan went on to say that "the capabilities of Eagle lighting to design, manufacture and supply 28,500 luminaires, of which 75% are manufactured in Melbourne positions ELA as the key lighting solutions partner for projects of this size and complexity across Australasia". The additional 25% of the lighting package is made up of products from Fagerhult, Whitecroft and Designplan. There is also a significant amount of SIMES product included in the order worth over $7.1m.
Alan commended and applauded the immense team effort put in to bring a project of this size to fruition and paid particular praise on both John Wilke, State Sales Manager (ELA QLD) and Mark Antonello (ELA Design Engineer) who worked in conjunction with Eagle Lighting partner and project builder, Lend Lease.
In more general terms, Alan added that “being a lighting solutions provider who approaches a project with the people at its centre, healthcare has always been a key focus for Eagle Lighting and the other members of the Fagerhult Group. This is particularly true with Whitecroft in the U.K. who have been involved in some of Europe’s largest health projects”. Alan also thanked Paul Barton, Regional Manager at Fagerhult and former Managing Director at Whitecroft UK. “During his tenure as MD at Whitecroft, Paul successfully partnered Lend Lease in many of these healthcare projects. Both Paul and current MD Michael Woods’ input and council throughout the initial stages of negotiations with Lend Lease was invaluable.
For Eagle Lighting Australia, the SCUH project follows the successful delivery of the Royal Adelaide Hospital, Fiona Stanley Hospital in Perth and both Royal North Shore and Blacktown Hospitals in Sydney over the last few years.
