Location:

Year Started:
2005

Duration:
6 Months

Project Value:
$2.06M

Contract Type:
Tender

This project involved building an extension to the existing Ascot Hospital in Greenlane. The existing hospital was boarded off and securely sealed to minimise noise and dust throughout the works. Excavation was needed for the sloping site, followed by rock anchor piles and a mixture of precast and in-situ concrete flooring. Precast wall panels were then erected with a steel and timber roof.

All of these works were carried out adjacent to the hospital and careful consideration was given when the new extension was linked with the existing.

A close working relationship was maintained with the hospital at all times. There were a large number of variations on the project as well as weather delays, which resulted in an acceleration of works.

A new retaining wall was constructed alongside the extension which significantly increased our scope of work. This resulted in variations on the project exceeding $500,000. This project was completed earlier than our contractual completion date and the client was very happy with the end result.
