Demolition work at West Cumberland Hospital has now re-started again in line with updated government guidelines which were released last week. This allows construction work to continue subject to stringent guidance, which Demolition contractor, GBM are fully compliant with.
GBM have returned to site at WCH to carry out essential demolition works so that phase two of the new hospital plan can begin to get underway again.
This is a positive move forward after building works were halted due to the pandemic. Workers are following strict social distancing guidelines and are currently working with a limited crew to a carry out the essential works.
The construction site at West Cumberland is completely self-contained and does not require access to the hospital itself for the crews to carry out their work.
