While workmen will continue to put finishing touches on the building over the next few days, the location is no longer a construction zone.

Project manger for Fairbrother Constructions Aaron Finnigan said he was thrilled the construction of the new centre had come in on schedule.

“It is a really good result,” Mr Finnigan said.

“The sub-contractors on the job have worked together well and the end product is a great new facility for the Port Fairy community.”

Mr Finnigan said construction on the new centre began in November 2015 with about 100tradesmen working on the site across the past 14 months.

Moyne Health Services interimchief executive Leigh Parker said staff will start moving into the building in coming weeks.

“We are extremely happy with how it has all come along,” Mr Parker said.

“We will start moving furniture and our own fittings in and install our IT equipment.

“Our aim at this stage is to be in the building working by February 20.

“Once it is up and going there will be 20 staff offand on who will work in the building.”

Former Moyne Health Services chief David Lee has been a key driver of the construction of the new centre.

Mr Lee, who left the organisation last week and moved to Queensland, said he was proud to see the centre come to completion.

“It has beenvery satisfying to work with the board of management on what is a 25-year strategy for the health services,” Mr Lee said.

“To be close to delivering on stage one of what is $11 million worth of projects in the pipeline is very exciting.

“To work with the Port Fairy community has been a sheer delight.

“Our mantra from the start of this long-term planning was about future proofing the services and leaving a legacy for those to come after us.”

The next step in the completion of stage one is the internal fit-out of the upper floor of the new community health centre.

This will come at a cost of $2.1 million with Moyne Health Services actively seeking funding to get these works done.
