2021 in review

First tower crane arrives on site - April 2021
During the past twelve months we’ve progressed from the first crane arriving on site to help build the new multi-storey car park, to the commencement of main works to build new hospital buildings, signifying that our much-anticipated redevelopment project is well underway.

Despite a range of hurdles throughout the year, including construction pauses, COVID-19 restrictions and unseasonal weather conditions, the project has made good progress.

The seven-storey car park was a main focus, with the first concrete pour in May creating a 3450 square metre ground floor slab. Today, the car park is almost at its highest point, with formwork commenced on level six of the structure.
Other highlights this year included the opening of a new education facility on eastern campus to support staff training needs while the redevelopment is underway, enhancement of the hospital’s mortuary and completion of a new, significantly expanded kitchen facility. Our Information Communication Technology team also successfully completed relocation and reconnection of the hospital’s network communications room, which involved more than 600 key hospital connections!
