A superb result was achieved in extremely challenging conditions – an outside wall was removed and the building extended, a floor was gutted and turned into wards whilst 17 operating theatres on each of the floors above and below continued to function. To complicate the Project further the need arose early on to incorporate major construction changes imposed by the new earthquake designs incorporating the IL4 Code requirements.
The fact that the results are almost invisible is testament to the meticulous planning and tremendous teamwork of all involved. The Project was still completed on time despite these significant variations.
