The refurbishment of the mortuary facility and expansion of the capacity within the Anatomy and Human Biology Building at the University of Western Australia’s faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Services to enable enhanced education outcomes.
NS Projects’ role on this sensitive project was firstly to assess the needs of the key stakeholders at the Clinical Training and Education Centre (CTEC) and Anatomy and Human Biology Department. From this analysis a project brief and budget was established, key consultants and project builder appointed, and the appropriate procurement method established.
A significant aspect of the project was the replacement of the existing outdated mortuary freezer and air conditioning system and the procurement of custom made mortuary equipment. NS Projects was able to facilitate the design of the equipment in consideration of the constraints of the freezer size and staff requirements. The application of a staged approach to the installation resulted in minimal disruption to the operation of this world-class facility.
NS Projects also negotiated with staff to reduce scope creep to maintain budget.
