Overview

Funded by the Victorian government’s 2020-2021 Regional Health Infrastructure Fund (RHIF), this redevelopment project will deliver a purpose-built community mental health facility focused on the specific needs and requirements of the Hamilton and district community. The $2.3 million Hamilton Community Mental Health redevelopment project will include an inclusive space that will include five consulting suites, a multi-purpose conference and education room, two waiting areas, three staff office areas, a secure and fully landscaped outdoor sensory area, 12 public car parking spaces and public and staff bathrooms.

South West Healthcare is pleased to announce the appointment of AVOR as principal consultants to lead design work and project management. Led by Amy Banks-Smith and Oliver Mackay, AVOR is a boutique, agile architecture practice that provides innovative, sustainable and tailored design. They have delivered a range of publicly funded community and healthcare projects in regional areas. We look forward to working with them from design concept through to completion of construction to deliver the Hamilton Community Mental Health facility.
