Here’s a snapshot of the construction work happening for the Surgical Services Expansion:

  • The link bridge will be closed all day on Tuesday 9th November. Please use the main endoscopy entrance to access level one of Ruakopito.
  • Ongoing construction continues in the stage 2 area (new Theatre Admissions and Discharge Unit). Painting and joinery installation has also started.
  • Demolition will continue in old tearoom and Tutorial Room (stage 4). Later in the project this space will become theatre 8 but in the meantime will be used as sterile storage for the theatre. Structural steel installation is scheduled to start on Wednesday and will continue through Thursday. This will take place during the day and may cause some noise and disruption.
  • Construction will continue in the stage five areas (old orderlies office and cleaners store). This work is to convert the area for additional space for the Central Sterile Services Department to house their offices and loan store and is expected to be complete later this month.
  • Work will continue on the exterior of the link bridge and in the basement.

Thank you for your patience.
