What’s happening on site?
Work on the $170 million Palmerston Regional Hospital is continuing to progress well, with the second floor of the hospital taking shape.
Stair wells and wall construction is continuing on level one, while main sewer and stormwater drains and water services are being laid to provide essential services to the future health facility. Concrete is being poured to form the floors of the second level, while site power trenching and laying of conduit is ensuring the future hospital’s power supply.
The eight buildings that will comprise the hospital will deliver the most technologically advanced hospital building in the Northern Territory and fulfils the NT Government’s long term plan for modern health service for Palmerston and Darwin rural residents.
During peak construction, it is anticipated there will be 300 people employed on the site.
