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.

Anglican Care signs contract with Kingston Building for Gloucester nursing home project

Close to four months after the official ground breaking ceremony for Gloucester’s new nursing home, Anglican Care has signed a contract with a builder.

Newcastle contractor, Kingston Building has been awarded the project after Anglican Care opened up the tender progress when getting the green light for the development application from MidCoast Council.

Although the project contractor isn’t a local business, Anglican Care chief executive officer, Colin Osborne said the company’s tender included quotes from Gloucester contractors.

“We made it very clear during the tendering process about local involvement,” Mr Osborne explained. 

“There have also been initial discussions with the high school about student traineeships during the building process.”

Contractors have already been on site, getting the area prepared for construction and Mr Osborne hopes a bulldozer will be soon to follow.

“There’s a fair bit of work to be done to get the site ready for the building,” he said.

As part of the tender process, Kingston Building was required to layout a construction timetable, with Anglican Care expected to meet with the contractors regularly for updates on the project.

“We’ll keep a close eye on the progress,” Mr Osborne said. “I anticipate residents will be moving from the current facility into the new facility by August next year.”

After the building construction is completed, Mr Osborne said it will take four to six weeks to get the building ready for residents. The organisation will need to furnish the building, test all the equipment and have a few dry runs of things like food service to ensure everything is ready to go.

Millfield Public School Anniversary Makeover

The Kingston Building Minor Work Team have produced another successful project in the Hunter Valley. This time being engaged by the Department of Education, to refurbish the historic Millfield Public School.

This project was a challenging, yet rewarding one, which incorporated a termite infestation and strict requirements to meet heritage conditions. However the dedicated team presented an incredible result for the schools’ 150 year celebrations.
