  • Following competitive responses from an extensive applicant pool, Hutchinson Builders has been awarded the tender to build a new 20-bed Community Care Unit in Cairns.

February 2014

On Monday 24 February 2014, Hutchinson Builders will be commencing construction of the Cairns Community Care Unit. The project is expected to take approximately 11 months to complete.

  • Construction Site security
    The construction site will be fully fenced at all times.
    All personnel access to the site will be controlled at one point of entry – the western end of Warner Street.
  • Trucks / Traffic
    The carting of soil to build up the site to the required levels will be via Wallace Street, with most other delivery trucks accessing via both streets to lessen the localised impact. (Most of the heavy traffic will be evident during the first few months of construction, and then slowly reduce)

    All measures will be made to reduce the nuisance to local residents in the area, in terms of noise, traffic congestion and general cleanliness.
  • Parking
    Parking will be restricted to the construction site, and if this proves to be insufficient local residents will be consulted to ensure that any issues are dealt with directly.

For more information view the letter which was distributed to residents in the neighbouring area.
