Port Pirie GP Plus

Client Health SA Location Gertrude Street Port Pirie SA Value $12M Completion 2013

The Port Pirie GP Plus Health Care Centre responded to the complex needs of the community, providing a much-needed expansion to the existing community health program adjacent the existing Hospital. A new family-friendly building was created with the physical mass broken-down into three residential scale north-oriented volumes with a triptych of folded facades activating the streetscape. The main entry has been setback from the street to provide for a drop off driveway and covered access ramp, as the floor has been elevated for flood mitigation.

The innovative internal layout wraps flexible consulting rooms and multipurpose meeting spaces around generous internal courtyards, providing natural light and ventilation to all areas, delivering a family friendly and community oriented facility with high green credentials.

The solution represents excellent value for money with a footprint in excess of that briefed and was delivered well under budget.
