If you have a medical project in mind, Eagleheart can help clients find the right property to suit their requirements. Eagleheart will review our clients proposed plans and look for a suitable property to cater for their needs by checking the zoning and developability prior to you committing to the space.
Finding the right property is key to the success of a medical fitout project, and will save a lot of time and money throughout the design and build process.
Read our blog “Working with Older Buildings and What to Consider” that provide insights into some of the common issues buyers can face when converting a residential property to a medical space.
Visiting a medical specialist can be an anxious and stressful time for patients. Doctors are recognising that the surroundings within their medical centre can have a profound effect on the wellbeing of their patients. A space that is calm, warm and inviting, promotes positive thinking and helps to put patients at ease when visiting their clinic.
Key findings indicate that by improving the aesthetics of the medical practice, it improves patient satisfaction and behavioural issues. For staff, it positively impacts performance, morale, and retention. There are many great benefits for providing a pleasant environment for doctors, nurses and their staff that work within the space every day.

Most medical projects are likely to require a building permit. It ensures that the proposed works comply to the current standards at the time of the project build. It is imperative that the builder that is chosen is registered and a building permit is obtained for your project.
At Eagleheart, we handle all the building permits for our projects, ensuring that this is integrated into project planning and compliance. According to the Building Act 1993 – Section 16, a person must not carry out building works unless a building permit in relation to the work has been issued, and is in force under this Act. Penalties apply for both personnel and companies involved if this does not occur.
When budgeting for a medical project, there isn’t a one size fits all approach. The existing conditions of the property have a large impact on the costs for the medical fit out project. Having an understanding of this provides the intel to produce an accurate estimate on what the medical fit out will cost. Speaking to one of our project consultants will help us to understand the detail of your project, and help you set your budget parameters.
Eagleheart works with our clients early on in the process, taking into consideration their wants, needs and vision, and we develop solutions to help achieve them within the budget parameters.
Our procurement team can provide a selection of suitable furniture and décor options that fit in with the design of the space. This includes the sourcing, assembly and supply in time for project handover.
Items like desks, bariatric chairs, waiting room furniture, storage systems and meeting tables can be arranged for you, freeing up time for you to focus on the needs of your patients.
