The FKG Group was contracted by the Wide Bay Burnett Building and Asset Services for the refurbishment of the Gayndah Hospital, originally opened in October 1921.

The works were undertaken in a way that preserved the building’s original character, and included the removal of asbestos linings, an upgrade to the kitchen with new appliances and equipment, reconfiguration of the building layout, new linings and paint, refurbishment of the current emergency department, and upgrades to the electrical, mechanical, and hydraulic services. The project also included new undercover elevated walkways for emergency services and ambulance access.

With works completed in an operational hospital, the project team implemented pre-emptive plans to ensure there was no impact on the operation of the hospital and no impact upon the safety or health of patients and staff members.

The FKG Group complied with the required engagement of subcontractors and suppliers for this contract, in line with the Queensland Charter for Local Content.
