Through Australian Unity, McCormack and Studio 103 were approached to work on a refresh of the amenities at the Manningham Medical Centre. The project involved demolition of the existing amenities on each floor, upgrading outdated and unsafe plumbing, implementing Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) requirements and refreshing the spaces overall. The works needed to be completed whilst the Centre was still operating and work-arounds had to be implemented so the staff and public weren’t disturbed.
The McCormack team is well-equipped to work within a live environment and, for this project, noisy works were scheduled early in the morning prior to the centre opening to the public. Works were also arranged to ensure they had no impact to the high-risk, expensive medical equipment that was in close proximity. Taking a collaborative approach to project management, McCormack and Studio 103 were able to deliver a fresh upgrade to the amenities. An ambulant cubicle was installed to ensure the amenities were accessible, and floating vanities gave a contemporary look whilst meeting DDA standards. Using solid black tiles, white and cream accents combined with silver fixtures and fittings, the result is a clean, streamlined, long-lasting design. [/vc_column_text]
