The main works tender for the $120 million STAR Building has been awarded to Richard Crookes Constructions.
The $120 million redevelopment of Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital is a step closer following approval of a development application by the NSW Department of Planning and Infrastructure.
The works will replace ageing infrastructure on the Hornsby campus with the STAR Building.
This building will provide a new home for Surgical, Theatres, Anaesthetic and Recovery (STAR) services.
The tender process is now underway and main construction works are expected to commence in September this year, with completion planned for mid-2015.
During construction health services will continue to be delivered at Hornsby with minimal disruption.

The Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital Stage 1 Redevelopment project has a name: STAR (Surgery, theatres, anaesthetic, recovery) Building.
The building name will help staff, patients, visitors and the wider community have a better understanding of what the Stage 1 redevelopment project will deliver on the Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital campus.
The acronym STAR spells out the services that will be installed in the new building, continuing along the theme of the HOPE (Hornsby's Obstetric, Paediatric, Emergency) building.

Health Minister Jillian Skinner and Hornsby MP Matt Kean announced a development application has been submitted for the redevelopment of Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital.
The $120 million redevelopment works will replace ageing infrastructure on the Hornsby campus through a new multi-storey operating theatre complex.
"This project is long overdue and will be of great benefit to patients for many years to come," Minister Skinner said.
Construction is expected to commence in late 2013 and the new operating theatre complex is expected to be completed in 2015.
After a lengthy consultation period the project planning team has come up with a proposal that provides a modern and functional operating complex that will allow staff to deliver the best possible care to the community. As part of the planning process the proposal will be on public exhibition.
Meanwhile, some early works have just been completed, providing a 90-space free car park in the area between the Lumby Building and Intensive Care Unit on the Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital campus. This will be available for use by staff, patients, visitors and the hospital's fleet cars.
This parking will help improve access on the campus and reduce parking impacts on the surrounding streets.
