Understanding your requirements
An initial consultation with our Space For Health experts will help guide the rest of the fitout process. For specialists, in particular, Space For Health needs to understand how your business operates so that we can meet design requirements. Now, although Space For Health has had extensive experience with specialist fitouts, there is no greater source of insight than the business owners as only you can communicate your specific vision to us.
Step 1 : Pre-Design
With specialist design fitouts the site location is vital. The site has to meet the specific requirements of the speciality. This requires customers and Space For Health to find locations that cater to very specific needs.
Space For Health, in consultation with clients, develop a checklist that helps to ensure each fitout meets the necessary needs of the client and their particular profession.
- Is a new site zoned by local council for medical use?
- Size requirements – Does the new or existing site have the square metres required/necessary amount of rooms?
- Parking – Is there disabled parking and access? How many car spaces are needed?
- Are emergency access/exits available?
- Construction feasibility – is there the necessary access, drainage, electrical, etc?
- Are the current services up to standard – fire protection, electrical?
- Does the building site comply with Australian National Construction Code (NCC)?
Using a thorough checklist, Space For Health produce costing, development and construction details that are given to the customer.
Coordinating feasibility and site applications
Space For Health wants to make sure that the process runs as smoothly as possible. We provide a complete assessment of the design feasibility which ensures that both financial and construction requirements can progress and be met.
A financial feasibility study will be conducted to assess:
- Total cost of the medical centre fitout
- Repayment options
- Developing a detailed plan to gain financial approval
- Establishing potential revenue and net income expectations
Space For Health also develop applications for site and design compliance regulations. This may include:
- Liasioning with the landlord
- Construction certificates
- Occupation certificates
- Development certificates
- Meeting design compliance regulations
After the completion of construction, a building certifier will be engaged so that compliance can be assessed and a final occupation certificate can be acquired.
