Scaffolding coming down slowly on south east side and it's looking good. Great to see a building that actually looks like the renders!

We should get another tower crane for the uni apartments soon, and maybe The Commons? Not sure on that one.

Yep - probably in arund 6 months. Not sure about the Commons too - I suspect it aint tall enough so they will probably just use mobiles. I reckon there will be one for the other flats in Bathurst Street though as that is considerably taller (assuming it actually goes ahead).

Local workers sacked but interstate crew keep on at RHH redevelopment, union says

THE union representing plumbers says the subcontractor that sacked 20 Tasmanians on Friday has kept its mainland workforce on at the Royal Hobart Hospital redevelopment site.

The local hydraulics and sanitation workers were told in a conference call about 2.30pm Friday that they no longer had a job, according to the people affected.


The Communications, Electricity and Plumbing Union said Canberra-based subcontractor AMS Hydraulics told the Tasmanian workers they were terminating their jobs because of a dispute over payments to the company with managing contractor John Holland-Fairbrother.

But John Holland-Fairbrother said on Saturday its payments were up to date.

“The joint venture has been working with the company to obtain further information regarding recently submitted variations which will go through the normal assessment processes,” the spokeswoman said.

The Tasmanian workers turned up to work today in their high-vis ready to pick up the tools again, Mr Burns said.

But they were shocked to find AMS’s workers from Canberra were still on the site.

“We all work for the same company,” Mr Burns said.

CEPU state secretary Michael Anderson said: “They’re filthy, absolutely filthy.”

He called on Health Minister Michael Ferguson to get involved in the dispute.

AMS Hydraulics directors have flown to Hobart from the ACT today.

John Holland-Fairbrother, the State Government, the RHH redevelopment team and AMS have all been contacted for comment

Royal Hobart Hospital patient transfer from new helipad to ICU likened to Thai cave rescue
By Lucy Shannon
Updated 38 minutes ago

The Tasmanian branch of the Australian Medical Association is concerned about the time it will take to get critically ill patients from a new helipad on top of the Royal Hobart Hospital to a new intensive care unit.

The new helipad has been built on the top section of the new K-Block of the RHH so emergency helicopters can deliver patients to treatment faster, but under the State Government's redevelopment plans for the hospital, the intensive care unit (ICU) will be located on the opposite side of the hospital from the helipad.

John Davis from the Australian Medical Association (AMA) said the transfer would take longer than if the ICU was situated in K-Block, where it was intended under the original plan.

"Patients come in on the helipad, they come down in the lifts and they've then got to be moved through a series of corridors," he said.

"Some might say something akin to moving small boys out of a cave in Thailand from Campbell Street across to Argyle Street."

A "practical completion" date for the redevelopment of the RHH is slated for the middle of the year, but doctors are becoming increasingly worried about the ICU situation.

Dr Davis said it was essential to get the hospital design right and to not accept what he described as "significant compromises".

He said Tasmanian patients deserved the best hospital possible.

"Should their heart stop, it's important that the medical staff that are required to restart their hearts and save their lives, essentially, are very close. The way the [hospital] is designed at the moment, those staff will be one city block away."

Dr Davis said there were also problems with getting to the emergency department.

"I understand the hallway that leads from where the lifts end in K-Block through to the emergency department is a little narrow to allow the retrieval team to go through," Dr Davis said.

[Changes to RHH plan could blow budget

The AMA is anxiously awaiting a review of the State Government's RHH master plan, which is expected by the end of February.

The Government promised the review in April last year in response to concerns about the unsuitability of K-Block for psychiatric patients.

Major work has been carried out building and fitting out the new psychiatric ward in K-Block.

Frank Nicklason, chairman of the RHH's Medical Staff Association, said moving psychiatric patients out of K-Block to a separate facility to make room for the ICU was a "live option" that was being considered by the clinical taskforce undertaking the K-Block review.

"There is good clinical consultation and also hospital architects working on this and we expect that we will have … their report by the end of the month," Dr Nicklason said.

If the Government decides to change its master plan in line with the doctors' recommendations at such a late stage in the hospital redevelopment, the promised mid-year "practical completion" date and budget would likely blow out.

In a statement, the Tasmanian Department of Premier and Cabinet said patient transfers from the new helipad to clinical care would take "a matter of minutes".

"Currently, such transfers take significant extra time involving additional transfers via ambulance," the statement said.

"It was two respected doctors who successfully made the argument that adding a helipad to the redevelopment would save time and save lives."

The statement said the fit-out of K-Block was well advanced.

"Works completed in mental health units include floor coverings, rooms, doors, painting and installation of anti-ligature fittings.

"Work remains on track to provide the Tasmanian Government with an update to the RHH master plan by the end of the month."

I'm in Hobart at the moment and I took some shots of the hospital this morning. It looks great, I really like the design of the facade

Great photos Oriolus. Nice to have you in our fair city.

By the way, I have never been to Townsville so how does the Hobart CBD compare to your neck of the woods?

Thanks Optomist! As much as I embrace all the good things about Townsville, there's no comparison. Hobart is so much better in every way, and the city and inner suburbs are even more beautiful and interesting and active then I imagined. I guess maybe it was more active then usual today, with a cruise ship docked and thousands coming in for the climate change demonstrations. But to tie it back to the topic of the thread, having the public hospital right in the CBD would certainly generate a good deal of extra activity for the area (whereas our hospital was moved from the inner city to the edge of town)

Thanks for the kind words Oriolus. It is a pretty little place and is certainly a lot more active that it used to be.

Glad you enjoyed your stay. Alhtough I have never been there I am sure that Townsville has plenty going for it and I can guarantee that in the middle of July when its cold, dark and wet down here in Hobart, the warm sunshine in Townsville would be very attractive!

Travel safe.

Haha true! I'm still in Hobart actually (leaving tomorrow), here are a few more pics from today. First is from Kangaroo Bluff. You guys don't have a Hobart photos thread do you? If not I'll make one to hopefully share some more shots of Hobart, including a stitched pano from Kangaroo Bluff, once I get a chance to edit.
