The FKG Group was engaged by the Queensland Government through the Darling Downs Hospital and Health Service to undertake refurbishment works to the Emergency Department of the Warwick Hospital. The project involved the refurbishment of the Allied Health Department, relocation of the rehabilitation area and gymnasium, construction of a new temporary Emergency Department, demolition and refurbishment of the hospital’s main Emergency Department, and upgrade of technical services.

The project scope also included all electrical works in the Emergency Department such as the removal of all redundant cabling, lights, data outlets, switches and associated components. A new dedicated electrical distributed switchboard was also installed in the Emergency Department to control the electrical reticulation circuits, all new lighting, switching, data and communications installed under the project, as well as upgrading the nurse call system to suit the new Emergency Department layout.

The team also completed the restructure of essential and non-essential power for the Emergency Department, as well as all mechanical works. This was not the first project undertaken at Warwick Hospital for the FKG Group, with the Minor Works team undertaking a refurbishment of the hospital’s kitchen in 2017.
