Key Features

Burnside Hospital

Hindmarsh were responsible for the delivery of this multi stage refurbishment which also featured major extensions. Close coordination of the works program with the hospital liaison person was critical as the hospital had to continue to function and fulfil commitments for available bed spaces and continuing access for specialist's tenancy areas.

Hospital upgrades are a difficult environment for builders, a lot of thought needs to be given to workfaces, noise, hoardings, how and when 'breakthroughs' can be undertaken, and timing of services interruptions all have a major impact on both the builder and the hospital.

Detailed programming is critical as is good and regular communication, and Burnside were complimentary of the manner in which Hindmarsh managed the process and the project.
