One year anniversary of main works beginning

It’s been one year since main works began on the John Hunter Health and Innovation Precinct redevelopment.

In the past 12 months, we’ve installed offices on-site for a project team of more than 110 people, built prototype rooms of clinical spaces that will be typical in the new building, made great progress on the road infrastructure that will connect to the bypass, and installed two tower cranes, Lifty and Lofty, to support construction work. 

More than 30 trades have been involved with the project to-date. There has been over 10,000 cubic meters of concrete poured (around 4 Olympic-sized swimming pools), more than 780 tonnes of steel reinforcement installed (about seven blue whales) and there are now 105 concrete columns in place.
