The construction of the Adelaide Health and Medical Sciences building (AHMS) is on schedule and construction is now at a stage where it is possible to take regular groups of people on a tour of the site. Tours will be run from 3:30-4:30pm each weekday throughout the month of May and each tour will be limited to 20 people.
Each of the tours involves taking the builder’s lift to Level 5 and then walking down through the building. Note the builder’s lift is an external lift attached to the side of the building. This is a working building site and full accessibility is not yet available, therefore you need to be physically able to walk down and up stairs, over stiles and around potential hazards.
Some important points you need to be aware of when deciding to take a tour:
- You will have to make your own way to and from the site. Please note there is no car parking onsite. Walk, tram, bus along North Terrace are all options.
- You must be punctual, if you miss the start of the tour you will not be able to join it part way through – this is for safety reasons as each tour is accompanied by a certified operator and we don’t want to shorten the tour waiting for latecomers.
- You will be provided with personal protective equipment to be worn for the duration of the tour, including safety boots, so please bring socks. You should also wear clothing that covers exposed limbs, e.g. long sleeves and long trousers/jeans.
- No photos are to be taken on the site, as part of our agreement with the building contractors.
- All tours are subject to any last minute direction from the builder and the prevailing weather. This is to ensure your safety and avoid any compromise to the building schedule. Any changes to a tour will be advised as soon as they are known.
