Principal building contractor, Richard Crookes Constructions has won the Master Builders Association (MBA) Southern Regions Building Award for ‘Commercial Projects over $40 Million’ for their work on the Tumut Hospital Redevelopment.
Delivered in partnership with Health Infrastructure and Murrumbidgee Local Health District, the $50 million redevelopment has provided a new, single-storey facility on the Tumut Health Service campus, which is offering a range of new and enhanced health services to meet the growing needs of the region.
The redevelopment of Tumut Hospital involved the successful planning, design and delivery of a fully integrated, innovative and modern health service, all housed under one roof.
The MBA Southern Regions Building Awards encourage, promote and recognise best practice in residential and commercial buildings across regional New South Wales, rewarding outstanding workmanship, innovation and teamwork.
Opened in November 2021, Tumut Hospital now offers enhanced health services for communities in the Snowy Valleys, including a cutting-edge CT scanner, ultrasound capabilities, and renal dialysis facilities. Additionally, the hospital's emergency department was expanded and maternity services improved.
HI congratulates Richard Crookes Constructions for this recognition and their contribution to healthcare in the region.
