Health centre revamp taking shape

Stage two of the Queenscliff Community Health Centre redevelopment is starting to take shape.

Stage two of the Queenscliff Community Health Centre redevelopment is starting to take shape with the installation of steel framework for the new building entrance.
Expanded, modern new client entrance and reception areas for the Medical Centre and the Community Health Centre are being created on the southern side of the existing building.
Project co-ordinator David Kilpatrick says there hade been some slight delays in the construction schedule.
“There was a bit of a slowdown on site due to some structural issues, but those have now been resolved and the project is well and truly moving ahead,” Mr Kilpatrick said.
“Once you start to see framework going up on a building project it helps give you a better picture of what the end design will look like.”
Work is also continuing on finalising the process to deliver the upgraded roadworks at the Point Lonsdale Road entrance to the site. VicRoads has been working with engineering consultants and other stakeholders to finalise the design.
“There will be some temporary changes to traffic once that work is ready to begin and we’ll let the local community know what affect that will have,” Mr Kilpatrick said.
The construction of new car parking areas will also form part of the stage two works.
The final stage of the project will involve construction of a two-storey extension on the northern side of the site.
The redevelopment of the Queenscliff Community Health Centre at Point Lonsdale is being jointly funded through a $3.04 million contribution from the Australian Government and a capital allocation of $2.85 million from Bellarine Community Health.
The redevelopment will transform ageing buildings into modern, flexible facilities.
Stage one has already delivered a new dental wing and expanded facilities for podiatry and dietetics services.
