Central Plaza Doctors & Medicheck

our services: concept design, compliance & approvals, construction documentation

location: McLeod St, Cairns City

size: 370sqm

completed: May 2011

A completely new practice to Cairns, Central Plaza Doctors & Medicheck is an expansive general practice medical facility in the heart of the city.

Creating more than simply a set of consulting rooms, this practice has a vibrant feel, designed to lift the spirits of both the patients and the practitioners. Our role incorporated the complexities of detail planning for several procedural spaces with efficient consulting rooms to ensure both compliance and service delivery.

A key element to the design solution was to effectively integrate the presentation and delivery of the Central Plaza Doctors and the allied MediCheck practice into the one premises.

Each practice provides patients with distinct medical services, whilst sharing administration and procedural spaces. But a successful space needs to be more than simply functional, so the application of a playful motif drives a fresh decorative palette.
