Orygen- Youth Mental Health Redevelopment

Parkville, VIC

Department of Health and Human Services



The Orygen, National Centre for Excellence in Youth Mental Health and Orygen Health is a facility that integrated service delivery models for two separate entities including integration of key functions with adaptability and scalability for future.

The primary project objective was to develop Value for Money purpose built infrastructure to accommodate current and planned Orygen—The National Centre for Excellence in Youth Mental Health and Orygen Youth Health clinical services, research and training activities.

The proposed development includes refurbishment of the existing building and the development of a new building.

Our team members have recent knowledge of the site and are fully conversant with the plant, systems, layouts and limitations and constraints it imposes on the implementation of the Masterplan proposal. Some the key items addressed as early party of LCI’s project delivery included:

  • Hazardous Materials Removal and Management
  • Routing of services to allow disconnections
  • Services disconnections for demolition of existing buildings
  • Relocation and re-routing of Utility Sewer
  • Relocation of the Mains Gas Supply and Meters for the site
  • Relocation, Re-Routing of existing mains utility mains supply
  • Establishment of new easements
  • Communications & Security System Services Utility Routs

LCI provided Mechanical, Electrical, Hydraulic, Sustainability, ESD, Vertical Transportation and Fire Safety Services design. Additionally, LCI prepared 3D drafting for all major services risers, plant and main trunk routes. The purpose of these drawings will be to demonstrate coordination with architecture and structural elements. This will allow clash detection of services elements using composite drawings and 3D for critical areas.
