Aldi-Blue-Haven

Shoppers rewarded by opening of Aldi’s latest offering

A line of 50 people waited patiently for the opening of Aldi’s Blue Haven extension and refurbishment on NSW’s Central Coast.

Extensive planning and attention to detail by Kingston’s project team ensured the works at Blue Haven were completed safely and ahead of time to allow Aldi to open the store as planned.

Having built the original store for Aldi 5 years ago it was hugely satisfying to be awarded the  contract  for the 300 m2 extension and total refurbishment including a multi-staged carpark redevelopment to create an improved facility for the Blue Haven area.

The Project team worked tirelessly to complete the project including the 24/7 Store shutdown period. The Project ran extremely well due to the effort put into planning and communication by all parties and it was great to hear a number of comments from subcontractors such as “this was the most organised project on which they had worked” and “this job is so well organised it makes our life so much easier”

Congratulations to everyone involved from the Aldi, Conrad Gargett, ACOR Consulting & Kingston teams!

Kingston’s Biggest Loser Doesn’t Take the Cake!

Competition was fierce between the Red and Blue teams in the annual battle for the Biggest Loser Competition. Over an 8 week period the team lost a combined weight of over 100kg – equivalent to 32,000 tea bags!!

With some questionable tactics & weekly temptations the Blue team won the day by a minuscule margin, all in all a fun time and amazing effort.

Hunter Health Ecstatic With Handover of 2 Hospital Projects within 1 week.

Dungog-Gloucester-Hospital - Hunter - Health Dungog-Gloucester-Hospital - Hunter - Health Dungog-Gloucester-Hospital - Hunter - Health Dungog-Gloucester-Hospital - Hunter - Health

Kingston Building recently completed the significant extension and refurbishments of both Gloucester & Dungog Hospitals. Both projects were staged across 12 months to significantly reconfigure and extend the hospitals, in the process creating new 2 & 4 bed wards, palliative care areas, relocated Emergency Departments, additional dirty utilities and the refurbishment of existing wards. All works were undertaken within an operating hospital environment while not impacting the existing health service delivery. Modifications to suit COVID-19 requirements mid-project were required and incorporated into the construction.
A fantastic achievement from all involved in both of these major works projects.

Pacific Gateway, Glendale
