Great Progress Being Made on New Hospital and Healthcare Facility

Keen observers will have noticed we have some steel work in place on the new hospital and healthcare site!

Robertson’s are currently erecting the “tail” section of the hospital which will house our Theatre and Endoscopy suites and also the Pharmacy and Radiology departments. The separate steel work construction is the energy centre, which will provide all the power for the new hospital and healthcare site.

It’s all very exciting!

Did you know that the total hospital and healthcare site area will be the equivalent of 8.7 football pitches?

And, if we weighed all the structural steel used in the buildings, it would be the same as 244 elephants!
