Quarter of concrete poured at new hospital
WILLEMSTAD - A quarter of the concrete that is needed for the Hospital Nobo Otrobanda (HNO), Curaçao’s new hospital, has been poured. The number 10,000 cubic meters of concrete is now a fact.
In October 2014 the construction of the new hospital began and according to the financing organization, Usona the progress is clearly visible.
“The realization of the 'carcass' of the first component is now at an advanced stage. Since January 2015 they have been continuously working on the parking garage and the first floor above.”
Construction of the new hospital requires an optimal logistic control, which indicates that good cooperation and close coordination between the parties involved is of utmost importance.
Usona also indicated that they use local contractors, staff and expertise and are opting for the local purchase of the equipment.
“The concrete is, among other things, provided by Betonindustrie Brievengat and the reinforcement braid is made by Company Betonwapening (Concrete reinforcement) Veeris. The concrete work will be completed by Curaçao Betonverwerking Schilderwerken en Betonreparaties. Furthermore, a local concrete expert is closely involved in the project.”
