Work at aged care home continues despite rain
Despite on-going rain challenges, progress has continued on building works at the Bluewave Living aged care home at Woy Woy, according to chief executive Mr Matt Downie.
"Framework has begun going up on the eastern side slab."
He said he was hopeful that once roofing was in place it would allow work to continue even on rain days for much of the rest of the build..
"On the western side, the first stage of the western slab has been poured."
Framework on the western side was expected to commence shortly.
"At the rear of the main kitchen, all the initial external demolition and in-ground plumbing work has been completed.
"Formwork for the slab for the extension should be ready for slab pour within two weeks.
"Once the Western slab is fully established and cured, work will begin on landscaping the two internal courtyards.
"These works are due to be completed prior to being built out because of the extensions.
"Once completed, these courtyards will become fully accessible to residents.
"The coming few weeks will continue to see initial framing, then roofing established over both the eastern and western ends.
"Services such as air conditioning, electrical, plumbing and data will be roughed in over the coming weeks once the roof is in place.
"While the overall build program has been heavily impacted by rain delays, we are working with North Construction to find ways to help catch up on the program.
"We are still hopeful of a completion of these Stage One works prior to the end of this year."
