Forward thinking to integrate drainage infrastructure becomes benefit for surrounding sites!

1/5

IMAGINE: 

  • To assist the Bendigo Medical Group to expand by creating a brand new modern facility in Epsom.

 

CHALLENGE:

  • Long narrow site which somewhat constrained the shape of the building.

  • Contemporary design in an area in which modern looking buildings are scarce.

  • Overland flow path cut through the length of the site which resulted in the entire building to be raised to avoid future flooding.

 

SOLVE:

  • Long walkway required for building access due to site shape turned into main feature design element.

  • Fire sprinklers avoided for windows in close proximity to site boundary, with all consulting rooms having outlook to private garden along the boundary.

  • Floor level successfully raised with disabled access still maintained from street and car park.

  • Storm water integrated as benefit to all neighbouring sites.
