350 square metre general practice (plus an additional 200 sqm specialist centre) with a centrally located procedure area. A lift was installed to connect to the upper level, allowing for an additional 150 sqm of usable space.
The general practice was designed to accomodate easy workflow of patients from waiting area to consulting rooms or to a centrally located procedure area with an djacent nurse's interview room. This case study identifies challenges of maximising valuable clinical space in a shell that was previously a bank (including a safe/strong room, steel curtains and counters and an outdated mechanical and electrical infrastructure). In order to meet the latest disabled access requirements, a lift was installed in the most non-obstructive location accessible from two separate tenancies on a single floor. Several structural considerations were made to ensure site safety and building integrity.
