FMSA staff visit the Victoria Police Centre for Family Violence

FMSA staff toured the new Victoria Police Centre for Family Violence facility at the Victoria Police Glen Waverley campus. Delivered under a design and construct with Ireland Brown Constructions, the $11 million project has been constructed in 7 months. The new complex has been designed to facilitate the domestic violence training centre, complete with practical classrooms, syndicate rooms and office space for staff.

Led by Project Architect Hao Lee, staff spent a sunny Saturday morning touring the unique building. The team enjoyed the behind the scenes look at the cadet and staff spaces including practical scenario classrooms and auditorium. Several staff in attendance were involved in different stages of the project and were excited to see the design intent realised so well.

Thank you to Project Architect Hao Lee, and Ireland Brown Construction for facilitating the visit.

Complete Project | Siles Imaging Clinic Epworth Geelong

Completed in 2017, FMSA Architecture was engaged to design and document the interior fitout solution for a new Siles Health imaging clinic at the Epworth Geelong Hospital in Waurn Ponds.

The client required a custom clinic design in line with their corporate branding and values to support the specialised women’s health services that they provide including ultrasound, genetic counselling, fetal cardiology and pathology collection.

The design solution developed by our interior designers subtly utilises the client’s corporate branding and colours with restraint to create a calm, inviting and modern clinic environment for patients and staff.

Branding is strategically positioned throughout the clinic to be viewed from the public area of the Epworth Geelong Hospital to minimise the visual noise in the modest clinic.

The rich purple of the Siles Health branding is used to create contrast against the neutral colour palette of cool whites and greys. Rather than introduce a competing feature colour, texture is used in the form of wall panels and fabrics to distinguish functions and create a softness in the space.
