Further progress has been made on the $150 million Goulburn Hospital and Health Service Redevelopment with the first concrete poured for the new four-storey Clinical Services Building.
Approximately 105 cubic metres of locally sourced Goulburn concrete was poured as work to construct the floor plate for the lower ground floor of the new Clinical Services building continued.
Once complete, the lower-ground floor of the new Clinical Services building will accommodate a number of critical departments, including the Emergency Department (ED) with its ED Short Stay and Ambulatory areas and Ambulance Bays, Medical Imaging; Patient Flow and Mental Health Triage & Emergency Service; Security, Mortuary and plant and communications rooms.
Over 15 concrete trucks and one concrete boom-pump were used, and it took approximately four hours to pour the concrete and an additional two hours to finish the work involved in the concrete pour with the concrete ‘curing’ over the following days.
The second ground slab and lift core base pours will be completed early next week.
The $150 million Goulburn Hospital and Health Service Redevelopment builds on the NSW Government’s extensive investment in health facilities across the district.
This includes $18.6 million for the Cooma Hospital Redevelopment and the redevelopment of both Yass Hospital and Braidwood Multipurpose Service as part of the Government’s $304 million Multipurpose Service (MPS) Program.
