New Stand alone Regional Single Storey Medical Centre located on the outskirts of Mareeba on the Atherton Tablelands provides new facilities to replace the existing practice that had outgrown its old premises.

Simple and efficient planning has kept the building compact and efficient, but allows expansive views to the ranges and tablelands all around.

Construction is based on the use of lightweight framed walls with cladding and glazing infill’s taking advantage of the 360 degree views. This decision to use a framed building was based on maximizing options for future flexibility and expansion.

For economy timber roof trusses and metal roof sheeting have been used over the majority of the area, with the clever use of angled ceilings bringing natural light throughout the interiors.

High level glazing over the main reception and waiting area, with an increased ceiling height enhances this feeling of space and light.
