10 WEEK BUILD
LOCATION: Gateway, Palmerston
COMPLETION DATE: February 2018
The Top End Medical Centre in the new Gateway Shopping Centre is a bulk billing medical facility offering a wide range of service for the health of the Palmerston community. This brand new facility was completed in under 10 weeks, used over 1000m of gyprock and was accomplished on time and on budget!
Spanning over 400sqm of floor space, this was a mammoth fit out that required specialised skills with medical grade finishes. Overall there are 11 individual treatments rooms that all include Burlesque Acoustic Panelling to sound proof the room, 1 large treatment room with space for 3 patient beds plus a manager’s office and 2 large reception areas topped with locally manufactured stone counters for the administrative team.
More than just a shop front, this extensive construction included 2 bathrooms with floor to ceiling tiles and a compliance with disability framework. There are over 17 sinks throughout the centre and a kitchenette located within the impressive staff quarters.
Throughout this modern medical clinic there are architectural design elements that add in a touch of warmth, creativity and a unique Territorian flair; for example – the hand placed timber panels that feature prominently in the main foyer or the gorgeous drop lighting overhead of the built-in bench seating in the reception room. In the treatment rooms; the sound proofing elements are coloured, and the unique hexagonal pattern relieves the space of the typical sterile doctor’s room – these small touches combined are what makes the final product really stand out as a modern and functional treatment facility
