Core Project Group Recognised by the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service
Marking twelve months since the official opening of its new base at Lake Macquarie Airport, the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service has today publicly thanked local construction company Core Project Group for the contribution it has made to the Service.

The Service’s Lake Macquarie base was officially opened by NSW Ambulance Commissioner Dominic Morgan on the 7th of July 2017. Recognising twelve months of safe and successful operations in the new base, Chief Executive Richard Jones OAM has thanked Core Project Group for its significant support and quality of work in building the base.

"The Service was extremely fortunate to have Core Project Group managing the base development. Thanks to the thought that went in to its design, and the quality of work delivered, we now have a new base from which we operate 24-7 to deliver the best possible care for our community" he said.

"The building itself achieved a very functional purpose. Firstly to house the terrific AW139 aircraft, but also to maximise communication and workflow for our engineers and the on-call duty crew which now includes a full time NSW Ambulance Paramedic and Doctor from the Local Health District. This all strengthens the overall service we provide for our community," he said.

"We can’t recommend the work of Core Project Group highly enough. From start to finish they did an outstanding job and twelve months on the results have been excellent" Jones added.

Director of Construction and Co-Founder of Core Project Group, Jamie Lind said it was an honour to secure the contract for the Belmont rescue helicopter base.

"The construction project took six months to complete and we engaged seventy subcontractors. The entire Core Project Group team are very passionate and proud of their contribution to the Service. From the start we recognised the significance of this project and it feels great to be able to give back to our local community and know that our hard work will help to save lives," he said.

"It was a complete surprise when Richard invited the team to the base and unveiled our logo. We’re very proud of the relationship we’ve developed with the Service" Lind added.
