The Da Vinci Plastic Surgery Clinic fitout project centred around two surgical theatres and two main offices with examination rooms attached. Situated within the Vantage building (a Foster Develop JV) the facility had to meet medical standard and all necessary regulations to provide a safe and hygienic clinical environment.
Architectural grade finishes were used throughout to create a modern and luxurious environment - high-quality flooring, lighting, cabinetry, and a range of wall coverings. Two curved walls provide a feature to the main entry / reception area along the corridor. The facility was designed to incorporate natural light and to create a calming and comfortable atmosphere for patients and staff.
About the project
The fitout included specialised equipment and infrastructure, such as surgical theatres, clean and dirty preparation rooms, exam rooms, and sterilisation areas.
Working to extremely high-quality standards, this cosmetic surgery fitout required careful planning and coordination, attention to detail, and a focus on creating a safe and welcoming environment for all.
Plastic and reconstructive surgeons Brandon Adams and Adam Bialostocki know the importance of precision and attention to detail. So, when it came to finding a construction company to fit out their new Da Vinci Plastic Surgery Clinic, they put their trust in Fosters.
The business partners had already purchased a 300m² ground-floor space inside Tauranga’s new Vantage building at 359 Cameron Rd, which Fosters was building.
“Grace Hospital, a private hospital here in Tauranga, had a large project undertaken by Fosters recently,” said Brandon. “Because I do some of my work at that hospital, I’d seen the quality of work that was done, and I knew they (Fosters) could deliver medical facilities to an excellent standard.
“And they were able to carry out the clinic fit out concurrently with the building project, which was a big advantage for us. It meant we could move in six months earlier.”
The new clinic had to meet specific electrical, plumbing and air quality standards, while incorporating sound proofing and ensuring patient privacy.
Adam said the Fosters team worked closely with their architect and interior designer to provide valuable input from the beginning.
“The design was ours but there was discussion along the way, and we benefitted from Fosters’ building expertise,” he notes.
“Their communication was excellent and so were their processes. They were also extremely accurate with their cost estimates.”
Key for Brandon was Fosters’ ability to mitigate Covid supply chain problems.
“Because they are a large organisation, when they needed to flex workforce and manpower to maintain timeframes, they did. This was critically important for us,” he said.
Brandon adds that he particularly appreciated the company’s proactive approach to problem solving and would work with them again “without a doubt”.
“I would, without hesitation, recommend Fosters,” he said.
