Working to your needs
It all starts with you. At the beginning of the process, we work closely with you to understand not just what you do, but how you do it. From hospitals to smaller specialist practices, it’s of the utmost importance for us to understand what you, your staff and your patients will need out of this space. It;s not simply a matter of need. We also strive to share the vision of what you want out of the new build.
This knowledge informs the rest of the process for a new build as it relates directly to the size, location, and technical requirements of the new space your practice will occupy.
Conducting an extensive and comprehensive site feasibility study is a crucial step for a new build. The real estate market is complex, and so are the legal requirements of developing a project from scratch. In our 27+ years of experience, We’ve developed a thorough understanding of the requirements, limitations and incentives for building in different areas in every state, nationwide.
It’s vital to find a site that won’t disrupt any existing infrastructure, and that won’t require massive investment in order to meet compliance. We also go the extra mile to understand potential locations – assessing the market and the demographics that exist there to help your business succeed.
Once we’ve identified a site, we’ll check every facet of it to ensure it meets the goals of your business. This encompasses everything from stormwater drainage to submitting a development application/planning permit. We’ll do the hard yards to get you into the location you deserve, and one that will benefit your business for years to come.
During the feasibility assessments, we work with a quantity surveyor to assess potential sites for the new build, or area for extension, to gain an accurate picture of pricing. We go the extra mile to ensure that our cost estimation covers everything and has room for contingency. What this means is that we can help to build a business case for securing funding.
The master plan begins early in the feasibility stage, and these initial sketches help us to determine the viability of the site. This plan may undergo several changes to optimise design. When the site and budgeting is approved, the design development stage begins. Space For Health take great pride in design development, producing spaces that reflect your business, as well as supporting optimal workflow and maximised recovery. We can design according to your individual tastes and budget, and provide valuable, professional insight into interior and exterior design.
Construction and project management
With an experienced construction manager and qualified builders, your new space will be erected on brief and on time. We don’t cut corners and ensure that everything is built according to specifications and meets the compliance standards of the Australian Building Code. Space For Health provides a project manager at the beginning of the process which is your point person for the entire duration of the project. This means you’ll have one contact, who can accurately report on the progress and development from the first meeting through to the final handover.
