In this issue of Hamptons Happenings, we showcase the Au


stralian Woodworking Industry Suppliers Association’s (AWISA) exhibition which is on from 1st to the 4th of July 2020 in Sydney… This is the ultimate Australasian exhibition if you’re interested in anything to do with woodwork, joinery, furniture making, kitchen and bathroom manufacturing and interior design… All of the industry’s leading suppliers, experts and innovators will be in there. If you’re looking for some inspiration, then this is definitely the place to be. 

Members of Hamptons joinery team are looking forward to attending this year’s AWISA exhibition and will be hosting a select number of Hamptons customers. If you’d like to find out more about the exhibition and how you can attend get in touch with Jamie Hawke – Key Account Manager at Hamptons who specialises in the joinery and manufacturing trade.

Now that is Fast…

Like the rest of the world, we watched in amazement as the Chinese government reacted swiftly to the Coronavirus outbreak and proceeded to build a 1,000 bed, hospital in 10 days… They then went on to build a further 1,300 bed hospital in 12 days. The Coronavirus outbreak occurred in late 2019 and by January 2020 the Chinese government were already taking the lessons that they’d learnt from the SARS outbreak and had mobilised to build two dedicated hospitals in order to try and contain Coronavirus by isolating people suspected of being effected and equally isolating the healthcare workers who were looking after them. This approach proved to be extremely effective when it came to managing and ultimately containing the SARS outbreak.   

Isn’t it wonderful when you can just make decisions and get on with things… The Chinese government simply chose a suitable site and then on the 24th of January they had  95 excavators, 33 bulldozers, five heavy rollers, 160 dump trucks, 160 managers, 2,240 workers assembled and getting on with it.

These hospitals were all connected to the water and sewerage systems, they had power, phone and the internet al hooked up. They had positive air pressure systems in place (to control the spread of infection) and all the relevant hospital equipment and personnel in place. They broke ground on day 1 and then on day 11 they were accepting patients and underway…

Now nothing is perfect and there are some critics (as there always are…) but compare this to other hospital building projects… For example, the Greymouth hospital tender was awarded in 2015, construction of the 56-bed hospital began in 2016… Construction of the hospital has had numerous delays and it is now hoped that it will begin to open its’ doors sometime in March 2020…
