Kane Constructions was engaged by Metro South Health to undertake the Stage 2 expansion of The Southern Queensland Centre of Excellence in Indigenous Primary Health in the third quarter of 2016.
Stage 2 included additional treatment and consultation spaces which expanded integrated clinical service delivery, research and training.
The three level 1655m2 facility links to the adjoining Stage 1 facility and provides a unique opportunity to reach an estimated 41,000 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders who predominantly live in the Brisbane, Gold Coast, Logan, Ipswich and Moreton Bay region.
The purpose of the facility is to respond to the health needs of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community, and to promote health, wellbeing, and disease prevention.
Kane proposed the use of both Pic-Perf and Digiglass to create a striking Indigenous inspired visual statement. Local artists were commissioned to create artwork for the building to be incorporated into the glass. The Pic-Perf material takes architectural designs and perforates them into metal sheets to precise specification. Digiglass uses a computer based digital imaging system to print any image into a glazing interlayer. It is exceptionally efficient and versatile, opening up a broad range of application possibilities.
Kane Constructions completed this project in early 2018.
