Exmouth Hospital completed works

Description

Exmouth Hospital, located in Exmouth WA, is approximately 1270 kilometres north of Perth. The town was established in 1967 to support the United States Naval Communication Station Harold E. Holt. In 2009 the hospital became a multi-purpose service, providing additional services besides hospital care and treatment.

DLR Building, acting as head contractor for the Department of Finance, engaged BUSS to complete widespread remedial works to the concrete surfaces and structures of the hospital. The BUSS team mobilised to site in early August 2020 to undertake the repairs, which included concrete repairs, protective coatings and screeding. All works were completed in mid-November 2020.
