The past few months have seen the achievement of major milestones on site with the structure becoming a dominant building on the Sunshine site.
An exciting achievement has been the completion of the tunnelling works to link JKWCH to the basement and the bridges connecting the building to the current Children’s Ward and Wards 1A.
Over 5,700m3 of concrete has been poured to date. The level four slab has just been completed and the final slab pour for level nine is programed for the end of April 2018. Installation has commenced on the Architectural façade precast panels as these works progress the look of the completed structure will be revealed.
The selection of clinical and non-clinical equipment and furniture has commenced with the focus currently being the procurement of major items that have an interface with the building.
Works have started under the WCHRE Building to create an enclosure for a new generator and works are also about to commence in the basement to address the additional demands that the Joan Kirner Women’s & Children’s Hospital will put on current services.
