Facilities Development Project

Update on CDHB development projects

As of June 2018,

Acute Services building

Up on Level 3 of the building, the first sample doors separating the beds in the linear multi-bed wards are due to be installed soon.

Demolition work has begun on the old temporary clean dock, where the new link will be built between the Acute Services building and Christchurch Women's Hospital. 

Christchurch Outpatients

Level 3 of the new Outpatients building is also nearing completion. The final builders' clean has been done and the carpets are in. Levels 2 and 4 are being worked on. Externally cladding, louvers and other façade elements are being installed. 

Walking in the Hospital Corner area - please be safe out there!

With the Christchurch Outpatients, Manawa, Fletchers Earthquake repairs and the Medcar site under construction, the area around Hospital Corner is VERY busy, and increasingly with heavy trucks.

Please take care and follow the appropriate safety and road signs.

There is a container walkway running up Antigua St to the Oxford Tce crossing for pedestrians and a dedicated cycle lane for cyclists travelling up Antigua St to the Boatshed bridge.

See the Christchurch Outpatients page for more details.

Please bear with us!

There is still at least 12 months of construction work which will mean changes and disruption on CDHB sites. It will be worth it however, because by mid-2019 Cantabrians will be enjoying state-of-the-art amenities in our new Acute Services building at Christchurch Hospital and the Christchurch Outpatients facility.

If you have any queries email itsallhappening@cdhb.health.nz and one of the project team will get back to you.
