The first floor provided an opportunity for a main entry from the rear carpark. The entrance leads patients into the light filled atrium with direct access into the Health Hub Specialists and future allied health tenancies, as well as lift access to the ground level medical centre. The lift also provides access to a future second floor level which will accommodate further allied tenancies of over 1,000m2 with the option of an independent entry at the upper end of the carpark.
The expansion of the Launceston Medical Centre includes nine additional consulting rooms, an education/treatment room, conference room, centralised reception/administration hub, cafe, two waiting areas, collection rooms for Tasmanian Medical Laboratories, as well as staff and patient amenities. The main waiting area sits below the central atrium creating an open, accessible and inviting space. The consulting rooms are spread around the perimeter of the extension with privacy glass fronts allowing these rooms to share the natural light. Construction of the upper levels is ongoing and the removal of hoardings and opening of the main atrium will bring this project to full light.
This project brought together all 6ty˚ services including Architecture, Surveying & Engineering.
