Qualified welders and weld procedures for welding as per AS/NZS 2980, AS/NZS 1554.1 and AS/NZS 1554.3: in accordance with the Project Plan and Specification requirements. Steel Fabrication Certification to Construction Category 3.

Site Safe SiteWise Green Certification; all staff trained, competent and qualified.

This project is another Staged programme with fabrication underway and construction programme started.  Experienced welders have provided the high-quality standard of work required for the project.

The development of the theatre has so far contributed to hundreds of construction jobs for the region.

Grace Hospital's general manager Janet Keys said the timing of the new theatre had proved beneficial as it meant being able to help clear the backlog of elective surgery patients built up due to lockdown restrictions.

Keys said the theatre was designed for spinal surgeries and about 120 elective surgeries had already been performed since it opened on May 11 2020.

That was an average of three surgeries a day and about 15 surgeries a week, she said.
