Australian Catholic University
The Australian Catholic University Student Led Clinic is an extension to the existing award-winning Health Clinic built by Tomkins in 2012.The two health clinics are identified in the master plan for the University as part and an exciting opportunity to symbolise the next phase of growth.
Tomkins was also engaged to assist during the design phase to ensure the project was practical and the desired 30-week construction phase could be achieved. The Student Led Clinic adds a two-level clinic including Psychology consultation and observation rooms, a purpose-built Exercise Science room and general tutorial rooms. A high level of acoustic detail was required due to the AV and privacy requirements of the building”s end users. The purpose-built exercise science room includes a flexible use sports floor which allows for interactive learning with the lecture room. The finishes specified within the SLC (Pre-finished CFC, a highly specified level of acoustics and one way mirrors) required workmanship quality to be of the highest standard. Constant QA was undertaken throughout construction to ensure that quality was maintained within the client”s stringent expectations.
“I am writing this letter as a formal recommendation . . . regarding the performance of Tomkins Commercial & Industrial Builders on the numerous projects they have completed for the Australian Catholic University, the latest being ‘Building T” which has just won a Queensland Master Builders Award for Education Facility over $5m.There are many challenges when working on an operational campus and the Tomkins team have shown their ability to effectively address any issues that have arisen during the projects that they have completed on the Campus and I have been particularly impressed by the manner in which the site team has managed the projects and their subcontractors to lessen the impact of works on the surrounding University community.I cannot speak highly enough of the level of service, the productive relationship and the professionalism that we continue to enjoy with the Tomkins team. I have no hesitation in recommending them . . . .”-Prof. Jim Nyland, Associate Vice-Chancellor (Brisbane), Australian Catholic University
