The final touches have been made to the new Midland Specialist Centre and Day Surgery in Western Australia, offering crucial health services to the local community.
Integrated property and construction group Pindan was awarded the $14 million contract to build the facility at the historic Sidings site at the corner of Centennial Place and Yelverton Drive in Midland.
Pindan’s Business Development Manager James Allingame said the 6,000 square metre Centre was constructed on behalf of Health Integra.
“We are thrilled to have finished building this facility which will help meet the growing demand for access to specialist health services in this part of the metropolitan area in the short term and as our population continues to age,” said Mr Allingame.
“It features state-of-the-art specialist medical and surgical facilities, consulting rooms, and a cafe over three-levels.”
‘’Experts in the building and real estate industries consider the Midland Specialist Centre and Day Surgery building to be in a class of its own amongst healthcare buildings in Perth, and amongst the top five standalone health care buildings in Australia today,” said Dr Vasantha Preetham, Managing Director of Health Integra.
The Centre is located at the gateway to the growing medical, health and wellbeing precinct being created in Midland, across from St John of God Hospital and next to the planned Midland Bus and Rail Transit Station.
Subiaco-based Palassis Architects has also been involved in the project.
“The building responds to the site context and history through its materiality and form; with the material palette consisting of exposed concrete, copper aluminium cladding, brick and glass creating a contemporary interpretation of the industrial nature of the site, and the façade design reflecting the rhythm of the Heritage listed Midland Railway Workshops opposite,” explained Palassis Architects Principal Kevin Palassis.
Mr Allingame said this was the second successful partnership project for Pindan and Health Integra.
“In 2012, we worked with the Health Integra team to deliver the Midland GP Super Clinic which was built within the historic railway workshop to bolster residents’ access to health services and this latest project complements that facility,” he said.
“We’re proud to have also recently handed over Parkerville Children and Youth Care’s new $25 million Stan & Jean Perron Child Advocacy Centre, built in the same important health and medical hub.”
