The University of Sydney engaged Intrec to complete two separate projects at Westmead Hospital’s Centre for Oral Health: the fitout of a new Clinical Training Facility; and the fitout of Biomaterials and Cell Culture Research Laboratories.

The scope of works was for the design and construction of the projects including both building and service elements. Further, the project design required compliance with the Hospital’s design protocols and framework and utilising existing base building elements that were to be retained.

The spaces provided by the Hospital were demolished back to shell and Intrec were able to use this blank canvas to design and construct a modern medical training facility for the next generation of oral clinicians and a state of the art research lab to enable USYD to continue its important research projects.

Intrec used high grade materials and finishes in the building process to ensure that these facilities stand the test of time. Building services were upgraded and new plant installed to meet operational requirements and functional parameters. Much of the building services were design in consultation with the Hospital to meet not only performance requirements for the USYD facilities but also the Hospital’s maintenance guidelines. Additional building services such as the dental air and dental suction service were introduced due to the limitations of the existing Hospital services. Also electrical and mechanical services were upgraded to meet current design and compliance codes.
