Hospital project on track

THE new Bendigo Hospital project is still on track despite the recent hot weather.

Work on-site resumed on January 13 after the Christmas/New Year break.

The first crane, called Ben, was erected on January 18 and 19 with a second tower crane to be erected in late March.

The bulk soil excavation is nearing completion with about 102,000 of 123,000 tonnes now removed 

Viewers of the webcam on the Bendigo Health website can clearly see the progress being made on the hospital structure.

The walls for the basement car park are near completion and they will be rapidly followed by the slab.

The slab on the ground is progressing across the site and is set to be followed by the first of the eight suspended slabs later this month.

The demolition required to allow for the construction of the childcare centre will start in two weeks.

Meanwhile, the new 128 room Art Series Bendigo Studio was successfully erected in just six days using modules prefabricated off site.

The hotel is expected to take its first guests in May allowing a few months for completion of the building.
