Smoking Ceremony at North Shore Health Hub

“A smoking ceremony is like cleaning the slate. It’s about being able to begin again with a fresh environment." Brendan Kerin

Brendan Kerin and Michael West joined us to perform a Smoking Ceremony and a Welcome to Country for the North Shore Health Hub project.

A smoking ceremony is an important way to acknowledge we are working on Aboriginal land, and to show respect to the Elders. It is also a sign that our workplace is a safe cultural space for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples who come to work on our project.

We were also joined by our client Dexus, representatives from the local health campus, Savills, IDIC and our subcontractors TSS Total Surveying Solutions, Cherrie Civil Engineering and Wagstaff Piling for the event.

Located next to the Royal North Shore Hospital health precinct, North Shore Health Hub is a new commercial health office space due to open in 2020. Setting a new benchmark in the provision of health services and healthcare workspace, North Shore Health Hub will offer state-of-the-art tenancies, with amenities including a covered bridge walkway to North Shore Private Hospital, an outdoor terrace, and significant end of trip facilities such as lockers, bike storage and shower facilities.
