The improved Townsville Hospital will significantly expand health services in the Townsville region and deliver long-lasting benefits to the local community. The redevelopment is part of a major network of hospital infrastructure developments to meet the future health care needs of North Queensland.
North Block included the opening of the hospital’s new 75 bay emergency department (ED), which is now the biggest ED in Queensland. North Block also includes a 34 bed maternity unit and an expanded Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
The project challenge, which Uni-span worked through successfully, involved constructing a new building adjoining an existing hospital, while maintaining 24-hour access, 7 days per week. Uni-span supplied over 350 tonnes, covering an area of 7000 m.2
Uni-span was awarded two Subcontractor of the Month – Safety Awards during the works carried out on the North Block.
Stages 3 – 5 of the redevelopment continue.
