The works involved the refurbishment of half of this two level Medical and Office Facility building including a new carpark area. Optimum tenancy layouts were achieved by maintaining the existing amenities locations but with a major upgrade, and the provision of a new entrance foyer and lift ‘tacked’ on to the existing building. This arrangement provided full accessibility from the new carpark, and also access to all upper floor areas.

The works were carried out in within 22 weeks, while the other half of the building was in full operation. A high quality finish was provided to the public areas with purpose built upholstered seating, high gloss acrylic wall panelling, slatted timber ceilings with movement activated LED strip lighting.

The quality of light within the public and tenanted areas provides a quality office environment. This was achieved by careful utilisation of full height windows and glazing partitions. The 6 tenancies were all fully occupied in less than 6 months after building works were complete.
