Southern Cross St Marks Road

Client:
Southern Cross Healthcare

Location:
Remuera, Auckland

Year Started:
2008

Duration:
1 Month

Project Value:
$364,000

Contract Type:
Negotiated

This contract involved stripping out, refurbishing and refitting the TSSU area located in the basement and the theatre corridor and linen stores, located on the ground floor.

The theatre corridor and linen store works were carried out over the Christmas break when the hospital was closed, as these were critical to the operation of the theatres and maintaining sterile areas. The programme was tight and had a number of long lead items but it was still successfully handed over on time.

The TSSU required a significant amount of work including chasing and excavating the floor slab to run new drainage and new medical gas pipework.

The contract value of the job doubled due to design changes and additional works instructed, but these changes were dealt with promptly in order to minimise disruption to the hospital. This project was completed on time and the client was very happy with the end result.
