Wairau Hospital Redevelopment - 2011

Started in 2008, and drawing to a close in mid 2011, the redevelopment undertaken by the Nelson Marlborough District Health Board (NMDHB) of Blenheim's Wairau Hospital has been a major project for Construction Coatings Limited.

Scheduled works included 18,200m2 of walls, 2,300m2 of ceilings, 1,560lm of skirtings, 100 doors, 5,354lm of architraves door frames and trim.  662m2 of panels, 484m2 of floors, 2,500 litres of paint and 27 months to complete. 

All of this provided a challenge for even the most experienced painting company.  Construction Coatings Limited were equal to the task!

As painting subcontractor on all four stages of the project to main contractor Hawkins Construction, the main proportion of work included full interior and exterior painting, but the tasks were varied and also included specialist coatings and tanking to the hydrotherapy pool.

Construction Coatings Limited consistently achieved every milestone in the tight construction programme.  Many challenges were met, especially during the closing phase of each stage, where up to 100 tradespeople could be on site at any one time, installing the myriad of elements that make a hospital work.

The standard of finish accepted by the Architect and the main contractor was demanding in the time frames prescribed by the building programme, and the fact that this all happened while the hospital continued to function literally on the other side of the wall.  Through close coordination with the main contractor and cooperation with other trades, Construction Coatings Limited helped make it happen.

The end result is a success for the client, NMDHB, the patients and staff who now enjoy a state of the are facility that will serve the community for decades to come.
