House ConversionsResidential house conversion to a medical space
Eagleheart can help guide you through the process of converting a residential house into
a fit-for-purpose medical space. It is always best to obtain advice from a professional,
prior to making any financial commitment.
The undertaking of a house conversion to a medical space isn’t necessarily a straight forward process. Having the right guidance, support and a knowledgeable team behind you, can make the process easy.
Residential properties in established suburbs are ideally positioned for medical clinics and will often provide a cost-effective solution to setting up a new practice. Properties located on main roads and key arterials offer great street appeal for General Practice, Specialists, Allied Health and Dental practice, easily capturing the attention of new patients.
Converting residential properties into medical clinics however does have some unique challenges. They are subject to re-zoning requirements and different building regulations. The current state of the property and its potential for conversion also needs to be considered carefully prior to purchase as this can have a large impact on the success and budget of the project.
Eagleheart’s project team can provide a pre-purchase site evaluation service that includes some important considerations:
- Assessment and advice on re-zoning from residential to medical use.
- Car parking requirements.
- Council application and the approval process.
- Design considerations to maximise the available space.
- Site upgrade requirements to ensure safety and electrical compliance.
- Disability compliance to AS1428.1-2009 and AS1428.2-1992.
- Advice on the preservation of heritage overlays (where present).
The Eagleheart team offers insights into the property that you many not have considered. In the event that a property is unsuitable for its intended use, we can also introduce you to other properties that may be a better fit for your new medical practice.
