Specialist Medical Centre

Coffs Harbour

Development consent had been separately arranged by the client prior to VBA involvement. The project was subsequently delivered under a design & construct arrangement and VBA was engaged by the local consortium to advance the design through the Construction Certificate and Contract documentation phases.

Strategically located adjacent to the Health Campus, the building houses 6,000 square metres of medical consulting suites and related clinical services over three floors, plus a basement carpark for 60 vehicles. Design cues were taken from the main hospital building with simple wall planes and blades clad in taut aluminium composite panel skins.

The project addresses issues of potential flooding, stormwater detention, protection of adjacent creek riparian zone and vegetation management, as well as incorporating environmental features such as louvred shade screens, solar hot water heating, rainwater harvesting for toilet flushing and landscape irrigation, and energy efficient mechanical and electrical systems.
