THE designers of Nowra’s GP super clinic last week took a tour of the ground works for a building they expect will be a first for NSW.
The Grand Pacific Health Centre’s innovative design will make it the first green four-star health building in the state.
Representatives from Grand Pacific Health and architects from Edmiston Jones viewed the latest progress on the construction.
The centre is being built between Shoalhaven Hospital and the Cancer Care Centre.
Owner of Architects Edmiston Jones, Mark Jones, said the staff involved in the project would visit the site so they could see the outcome of their work.
Grand Pacific Health chief executive officer Dianne Kitcher spoke of Nowra’s surroundings being the inspiration for the building’s design.
“It was important for us to capture the essence of the Shoalhaven community and the local environment in the design of this centre,” she said.
“Our aim is to deliver high quality healthcare services in a setting that is inviting, culturally appropriate and accessible for local residents.”
