Client: Capital Pathology
Date: October 2015
In early 2015, Evri Group approached AMC to assist them play a strategic role in securing and then delivering a new laboratory fit out in the ground floor of Building 4 at Equinox Business Park, Deakin. This fitout needed to meet the competing requirements of a detailed, highly technical laboratory environment with an exceptionally tight time frame and clear budget parameters. The new laboratory will be the headquarters for Capital Pathology’s Canberra and Southern NSW operations, which are extensive. This is a highly function based fitout with a focused management of flow and integrity of pathology samples from Courier delivery, data integrity to diagnosis delivery.
As well as the issues of time and complexity of programme, other key aspects of the project were the overlaying a detailed lab building in to an existing Five Star Greenstar rated office building. This included alternative solutions for the change from a Class 5 to Class 8 building and the challenge of overlay of a significant number of service penetrations with the tendons of the existing post tension slab.
