Cladding and lining systems from the Innova range by BGC Fibre Cement were specified for diverse applications at the Coleraine Hospital in Coleraine, VIC.

Built by Nicholson Constructions for the Western District Health Service, the $27 million health precinct includes a brand new hospital with 10 acute and 27 aged care beds in addition to a support services building for catering, maintenance and administration.

The healthcare facility also comprises of a new medical, dental, maternal and child health, and primary care services building. Additionally, the project encompassed the redevelopment of the 24-bed Mackie House aged residential unit plus new facilities for physiotherapy, podiatry, planned activity group and other allied health services.

According to Matt Patzel, Owner, MG Plasterers, BGC’s wide range of Innova cladding and lining systems gave them a lot of options for the prestigious project. They used Duracom and NuLine Plus as external cladding; compressed sheeting on the fascia; and 9mm and 6mm Duralux for the soffits. For the inside, they installed 12mm and 9mm Duraliner in the wet areas as well as the high impact areas in the corridors.
