Upgrade of the Imaging Services at Calvary Hospital in Tasmania, in a life environment. The project was staged in multiple facets due to the requirements to keep the MRIs functional at all times and void disruption to the hospital. Successfully, the fitout involved the planning, design and delivery of the new CT Room, X-Ray, Ultrasounds Rooms, Mammography,, Bone Densitometry, Dental OPG, 2 MRIs and admin and support areas. The MRI had to be delivered by removing part of the façade of the building and craning the equipment through a limited area.

We have been very pleased with the medical suite design-build that Space For Health supervised for us.
The design has been mentioned positively by many of our patients who see doctors on a regular basis. They feel it is a pleasant environment and makes it a lot more relaxing visit than would otherwise be the case.
The radiation shielding which is necessary for the nuclear medicine suite was all integrated into the design so that it is a safe environment for our patients and staff but without altering the design features.

I have had the pleasure of working with Space For Health on three medical practice fitout renovations since 1999.Space For Health are a superb architecture firm with an excellent understanding of the needs of medical practice and superb design skills. In addition they are an excellent Project Manager of the building work required. In my experience two out of the three renovations we have performed in our practice have been performed during periods of time in which we have had to continue working throughout this period.
I would be most happy to recommend Space For Health without reservation.
With kind regards, Yours sincerely,

I have now worked with Space For Health on two separate projects: one to set up consulting rooms and a 2-theatre day surgery, the other to develop a medical Centre and a 4 theatre hospital.
Late night inspection of a building site? No problem. 7th change to the concept lan? No problem. Dealing with a difficult council? No problem. Deadlines? No problem. The rooms and day surgery were concept designed, certified and fitted out within 4 months. The keys were handed to us 3 days ahead of schedule and the project manager totally restored my faith in the building/Fitout industry. First class, professional and pleasant to deal with.
They charge reasonable rates and I have found that a lot of small extras are not even being invoiced. I have two more projects planned and fully intend to use Space For Health on these as well.

We consider ourselves fortunate at having been referred to the wonderful team at Space for Health.
For a new practice with a tight budget, the Space for Health team designed a modern, clean, highly functional office while never compromising aesthetics or quality. The prompt responses from the Space for Health team were always appreciated, and their design advice invaluable. Many of our patients have commented on our beautiful new reception area, and our neighbouring suites have said we now put them to shame.
We would happily recommend Space for Health to any medical practice looking at a renovation or new build.

Working closely with the head office team, Space For Health spent 12 months in the early stages in developing a strong design concept. The result was an architectural manual design and development to the standardisation of the design, finishes, and fitout which is used throughout every project to ensure consistency across all sites, no matter the location, size, scope of works or tenancy.
Space For Health’s feasibility work and project management included site assessment and recommendations, centralised procurement, as well as liaising with landlord and regulatory authorities for approvals in both regional and CBD Areas of Australia.
The scope of design and fitout of the imaging clinics including both new and live operating environments. For example, the 6-Stage Refurbishment at I-MED in Mt Isa Hospital required one X-Ray RM and CT RM operational at all times whilst we fit out the new imaging facilities. We are experienced in working with challenging circumstances in the fitout stage.
