Largest health building project ever

The Government announced plans today that confirmed the largest health building project ever in New Zealand, a new regional and teaching hospital in Dunedin.

Building will begin ‘before the next election’, it will employ 1000 workers at it’s peak, and is set to be completed by 2026.

Importantly it will be built in downtown Dunedin, on separate land to the existing hospital buildings, ensuring minimal disruption during construction.

The now closed Cadbury chocolate factory site will be used, as well as another whole block. A down side for some will be the closure of the Cadbury World tourist attraction.
