Our firm is very excited to announce that next month construction will commence at our adaptive re-use project, Morayfield Health Hub . Last year we were engaged by Health Developments Ltd. to design what will be the largest medical center of its kind in Australia. The existing site is a 7000m² tilt-panel and steel frame structure, once utilised as a hardware store. Extending on this, the new footprint will be 14,000m² of net floor area, facilitating a 3000m² doctors surgery, gym and rehabilitation center, in addition to a variety of complimentary health, medical and fitness services.
The high volume internal space and existing central expressed roof will delineate the core of the buildings new life,with a 700sqm centralised atrium accessible from all tenancies and filled with natural light; additional void spaces to allow connections between levels; and a circulation hub in the form of balcony walkways which will encourage activity and engagement between the building uses.
The space is finished with a selection of enduring materials including, glass, white concrete and timbers that deliver a sense of quality and feeling of warmth and comfort. Externally, the façade is re-engaged with its setting, proudly addressing the street with new shopfronts, awnings and expressed entry foyers, finished with glass, metals, paints and hints of timber and white concrete providing a subtle association with the internal spaces.
This project has experienced a rigorous design process through a team of specialist design consultants, ensuring, all aspects of the project have been carefully considered and designed to meet statutory and regulatory requirements.
Construction will be completed by Evans Built and is expected to be finalised this time next year! We look forward to keeping you updated with its progress.
