Project Update

850x450-CMH-Extension-GBN.png Early works have continued to progress on the Community Mental Health Extension over the last month, with the slab laid and framing completed on the Community Mental Health Drug and Alcohol (CMHDA) wing.

The roof, windows and external cladding have been installed, with the sheeting and painting of the internal walls completed. The services rough-in is also near completion, which means that all service cables and pipes have been run through the building, but have not yet been connected to their respective fixtures or elements.

The courtyard garden beds and tree ferns from Lady Grose have been planted, brightening up the outdoor area.

Community Mental Health staff have had the opportunity to go on accompanied on tours through the construction zone. This allowed staff to view the foundations of their new activity based working space which consists of meeting rooms, collaborative and quiet breakout areas, as well as individual spaces designed to create opportunities for a variety of activities.

The new CMHDA wing will accommodate all areas of the CMHDA team; Management, Adult Mental Health Service, Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service, Older Persons Mental Health Service as well as Drug and Alcohol Services.

Staff have already commenced relocation.
