To mark International Women’s Day, the project team stepped into the Hospital School to share career experiences and highlight some of the reasons why they’re passionate about being part of building our hospital’s future.  

Health Safety Officer Gabrielle York and Site Engineer Leah Mudie represented Roberts Co, the builders of the new Paediatric Services Building.

“Meeting with some of the patients and siblings in the hospital reinforced the rare opportunity we have to be part of this incredible redevelopment project,” Ms York said. 

“It was special to have time with the kids and share our career stories in the hope that they might feel inspired to pursue a role in construction or engineering.” 

The visitors’ building skills were put to the test in the classrooms when they sat down to create cranes in the primary school and test out the 3D printing machine in the high school.  

This partnership between the Hospital School and Redevelopment team continues to grow by enabling various Roberts Co team members the chance to step away from daily work and focus on the project’s purpose – building world-class facilities that will help children and young people live their healthiest lives. 

In further International Women’s Day celebrations, members of the redevelopment project team including Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network, Health Infrastructure, Roberts Co, Kane Constructions and Scyne also came together to celebrate the accomplishments of women across the project and further afield.
