The Gemini Medical Centre comprises a reception with waiting room and ablutions, fifteen consultants’ and pathology rooms, two operating rooms, a nurses’ station with ward area, three OHS rooms and staff rooms. Externally we constructed a courtyard area with feature columns and a customer and staff car park.

The construction utilised in situ footings and concrete floors, tilt-up wall panels, structural steel roof framing and custom orb roof cladding. The roof structure was architecturally designed.

We used full-height glazing walls and hi-lite windows to create a light, airy ambience.

Acoustic gyprock walls and ceilings provided the necessary soundproofing for comfort and privacy. The finish included aluminium sunscreens and perforated, feature gyprock ceilings and external, textured, patterned painting.

We custom-made the feature reception bench and fitted vinyl and carpet flooring throughout.

The medical centre was constructed adjacent to a busy shopping centre, requiring meticulous traffic management and coordination of services. The project required the installation of medical facilities and equipment.

The centre was completed within the 34-week time frame and received industry recognition in the form of the Master Builders Awards 2007 — Best Building under $10m.
