Subcontractors who worked on the recent Rotorua Hospital redevelopment have been urged to take up any issues with Mainzeal's receivers.
Mainzeal Property and Construction, the main contractor on the hospital's recent redevelopment, has gone into receivership.
Lakes District Health Board chairman Deryck Shaw said Mainzeal had completed the main project to build the new three-level hospital building and upgrade of operating theatres late last year and moved off the hospital site before Christmas. Subcontractors were on site during last month and early this month completing defect rectification works, he said.
Mr Shaw said the board would be working with the receivers to finalise matters relating to warranties and claims for additional payments but it was fully up to date with all required payments to Mainzeal.
He said if any subcontractors had issues with Mainzeal about the Rotorua Hospital site, they should take those up with PricewaterhouseCoopers, the receiver. PWC has said it is committed to doing the best it can for suppliers, staff and subcontractors.
Mainzeal used several dozen subcontractors on the main hospital project, Mr Shaw said.
Two other projects are underway at the district health board's hospitals - the redevelopment of the Older Persons and Rehabilitation Service at Rotorua Hospital and the redevelopment of Taupo Hospital.
The main construction contractor for these projects is Fletcher Construction.
