Exploratory trenching begins

25 May 2017

Exploratory works have started around the former Children’s Hospital this week. This work includes some jack hammering and digging to determine the type of rock and foundations on the site and isolate some underground cabling.

This work will generate some noise on site for the next three weeks.

These works are critical to isolate some services prior to demolition works and determine the machinery and approach required for excavation of the site later this year.

Activity update at Herston Quarter

16 May 2017

The disconnection of services in the old Royal Children’s Hospital on the Herston Quarter site is now underway as part of the first stage of the Herston Quarter redevelopment.

These works will take place over the coming months and will allow for the diversion of important cabling and future demolition of the building.

Every effort is being made to ensure minimal disruption to services on the site and staff will be made aware of when short term outages to data or telephones are anticipated.
