Schick Construction & Cartage has secured a contract for the development of the Acute Services Building (ASB) of Christchurch Hospital in New Zealand.

The 62,000ft² ASB will be constructed, as part of the $650m redevelopment of Christchurch and Burwood Hospitals.

According to New Zealand’s health ministry, ASB is one of the anchor projects in Canterbury’s recovery from the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes.

ASB will also help Canterbury District Health Board to meet the health needs of the growing and increasingly ageing population.

Christchurch Hospitals Redevelopment Partnership Group chair Evan Davies said the Hamilton-based company will carry out the works on the site, behind Christchurch Women’s Hospital.

"ASB will also help Canterbury District Health Board to meet the health needs of the growing and increasingly ageing population."

Davies added: "The enabling works will continue until March 2015, with construction of the ASB planned for completion by mid 2018."
