Our character is distinguished by the collaborative approach of our people and their dealings with colleagues, clients and the community to achieves our promise that working together sets us apart. The experience and nous of our ‘older heads’ is complemented by recruits who bring in fresh ideas and stimulate a re-think of traditional approaches and systems.

Each project is benefited with a clear chain of accountability, with our operational directors assuming the ultimate responsibility for the success of each and every project.

The Project

The Tweed Valley Hospital project will deliver a brand new state-of-the-art major referral hospital on a greenfield site for the growing Tweed-Byron region.  

Ownership of the site opposite Kingscliff TAFE transferred to the NSW Government on 2 November 2018 and the immediate task is to ensure appropriate environmental control measures are in plan and complete the balance of the geotechnical drilling that was not possible while farming operations were underway.  These works will enable critical path design activities to continue and provide an immediate benefit to the environmental area that is being preserved along the northern boundary of the Project Site and completion is targeted prior to the wet season.

Geotechnical drilling is underway and the scope of the remaining Preliminary Works includes:

  • Site establishment including chain-link fencing of site
  • Set-up temporary accommodation and amenities to service the preliminary works
  • Temporary site electricity supply from existing 100kVA pole transformer
  • Application for a temporary electrical supply to service the site needs during the preliminary works
  • Supply and install a new electrical point of connection within the site as required
  • Supply and install a weatherproof distribution board suitable for the supply of temporary site loads
  • Supply and install temporary security lighting pole mounted at each of the new entry gates
  • Temporary construction carparking
  • Demolition of existing onsite buildings
  • Onsite soil and water management (i.e. sediment basins and drainage swales)
  • Temporary stormwater drainage (for site compound)
  • External road works, including:

                -  New site access point from Cudgen Road at south-western site boundary

                 - New site egress point to Turnoch Street roundabout, including intersection upgrades.

  • Potable water supply and connection across Turnoch Street
