Construction reaches big milestones

It’s been all go on-site in the first few months of 2022. Our construction team reached some exciting milestones recently. The building is now fully enclosed and watertight, and the structural steel and ducting have been installed.

Reaching these milestones means the internal fit-out can start in earnest, with multiple trades such as plasterers, electricians, carpenters, joiners, and painters now able to be on-site completing work throughout the hospital. 

We’ve shared some of this great work on our Facebook page, but we thought it was high time we celebrate the incredible work that’s been going on with a selection of photos from the site over recent months.

Tradies have been a bit camera-shy, so make sure you also check out the Vehicles On-Site gallery below to see some of the fantastic businesses that have given us a hand.

Vehicles on-site

We are forever grateful to the many tradespeople who continue to donate their time, skills, and materials to the Southland Charity Hospital project. Most of our tradies are a bit camera shy so we have been trying to capture all their vehicles when they are on-site. Here are some of the vehicles we’ve caught over the past few months.
