Challenge: 

Barwon Health is Victoria’s largest regional health service, providing for more than 450,000 people in Geelong and South Western Victoria. 

The GCEID network is a partnership between the City of Greater Geelong (CoGG), Deakin University, Barwon Health and CSIRO. GCEID’s will deliver innovative research outcomes, providing practical solutions to the risks posed by EIDs to this region of Australia, nationally and internationally.

The first level is an existing (1,750 square meters), training facilities including large lecture theatre, break-out spaces for students, offices, teaching and training areas and various amenities. Two levels of split level underground car parking were included.

Solution: 

This project was comprised of the fit out of a floor (approximately 1,448 square meters) of the Barwon Health Teaching, Training and Research (TTR) building, providing laboratory and collaborative office space where clinicians, human and animal researchers can work together to address risks, outbreaks and therapeutics. 

Outcome: 

There is now better quality training facilities, brake-out space for students, offices, teaching and training areas, various other amenities as well as more car park space for students and lecturers. This new space ensures the happiness and comfort of both students and staff.
