Despite inclement weather including snow, hail, rain and strong winds, the Bathurst MRI & Imaging Department Extension site team has celebrated the achievement of various key project milestones while keeping the existing hospital and imaging department a live, operational environment.
Working closely with Western NSW Local Health District and NSW Public Works, Team Taylor has completed all external works, pouring of concrete slabs, in-ground services and installation of the structural steel framework at the modern facility.
In the coming months, works will commence on the metal deck roofing, installation of building services and external cladding/façade works.
Once complete, the single-story extension to the Ground Floor will provide Bathurst Health Service with a new MRI room, control room, anaesthetic prep area, change facilities, bathrooms, shared office and general store. The scope of works also include external alterations to the existing pedestrian walkway between the emergency department and main hospital entrances.
The Taylor team is excited to be delivering a final outcome that will make a meaningful impact in this regional area. On completion, the new extension will provide improved healthcare services to the broader Bathurst community.
Works are due for completion in January 2022.
