NEW BUILD PROCESSEagleheart provides a complete turnkey solution ensuring that the project moves as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
We take the steps necessary to ensure that the new medical build project has a very high chance of success through the council approval process, prior to property purchase.
Every step is project managed through Eagleheart to eliminate costly mistakes and time overruns, leaving our clients to focus on what they do best – running their medical practice and attending to their patients.
Pre-purchase site or property review
The site review ensures that the property is a suitable option to transform into a new medical space. This gives clients peace of mind prior to financially committing to the property.
The site review includes:
- A site feasibility check based on its development intent.
- An indication of site parameters.
- A review of car park requirements and zoning.
The Doctor, Specialist or Surgeon proceeds to purchase the property best suited to their business and future requirements.
Eagleheart Site Assessment (ESA)
The ESA ensures the car parking and building size is commercially appropriate for the land size. This takes into consideration setbacks and local council overlays. Accurate project estimates can be provided at this stage to establish the current construction costs of the project build, prior to submitting to council.
Town planning and rezoning
The Eagleheart team project manages the difficult and time-consuming town planning for each of our projects to ensure that you can operate legally from the premises. This includes organising and compiling all reports and surveys that are necessary when submitting a project for rezoning to council.
This step is extremely critical to ensure the client can achieve the maximum development potential of the available land size.
Healthcare facilities and clinics must comply to specific access requirements for both patients and staff. It is likely that a new fitout will require upgrades to the property to comply with the current code. We make it a priority to ensure that the whole project is compliant to the Australian healthcare fitout standards, OH&S codes, building codes and council permits.
Eagleheart’s town planning expertise and knowledge allows us to offer guidance concerning the following areas:
- Branding approval
- Disability compliance
- Car parking
- Facade changes
Construction Documentation & Engineering
All the necessary information to develop, construct and commission the proposed site. This includes engineering, building permits and additional council permits that are all completed within this phase.
Council approvals for change of use requirements
Council approvals are required for a fitout in an existing building when a change of use will take place. An example of a ‘change of use’ is a property change from an office or retail suite to a medical clinic. If your chosen space has had continuous previous medical use, it’s considered a complying development and may not require the same council approval. Without council approval, your insurance may be invalid in the case of a property fire or natural disaster.
