IF THEIR high-visibility vests and hard hats weren’t enough to make them stand out, site personnel working on the Tamworth Education Centre project have been presented with another piece of work wear that’s hard to miss.
AW Edwards is supporting the McGrath Foundation by equipping all of its site staff with fluorescent pink Mack work boots.
The organisation is the first construction company to support the foundation in this way and the Tamworth boys are the first team to step out in the pink boots ahead of the initiative’s official launch in December.
Construction of the education centre, funded by the Department of Health and Ageing and Health Workforce Australia, is virtually complete and it’s expected to be occupied this month.
Consisting of a two-storey education centre for the University of Newcastle’s Department of Rural Health, it will also house tutorial and study facilities as well as
clinical teaching and simulation laboratories.
Construction also includes five two-storey student accommodation blocks and the refurbishment of the existing education centre within the Tamworth hospital campus.
