    • Roof replacement and operating theatre complex construction advances
    • Contracts awarded for public art and kitchen refurbishments
    • Part of the McGowan Government's ongoing investment in Collie-Preston

    The McGowan Government's $14.7 million state-of-the-art redevelopment of the Collie Health Service continues to progress with significant works now underway.

     

    In another important milestone for the project, brickwork for the operating theatre complex and the roof replacement are now both nearing completion and contracts have been awarded for the kitchen refurbishment and artwork.

     

    The kitchen refurbishment contract has been awarded to Impala. This work will include new ceilings, vinyl flooring, walls and equipment.

     

    Perkins (WA) Pty Ltd was awarded the contract for construction works in March 2022, which is seeing the operating theatre complex completely upgraded.

     

    In addition to the operating theatre, the redevelopment includes a waiting room, reception, consult room, telehealth room and patient recovery bays.

     

    Other critical infrastructure works include upgrades to heating, cooling and ventilation systems, replacement of hot water systems, upgraded electrical systems and upgraded car park lighting.

     

    ArteryMedia have been awarded the community arts project contract.

     

    Reflecting a theme of healing, recovery and care, lightbox artwork will display prominently in the main entry and continue into the structure, providing an illuminating feature to the hospital.

     

    The Collie Health Service redevelopment is on track for completion in mid-2023.
