Bluff Road Medical Centre


Evidence-based design, meets evidence-based medicine

Established in 1987, Bluff Road Medical Centre is Melbourne’s Bayside leading medical group. Tandem were first engaged to evaluate the best solution to their growing space and business requirements.

Tandem prepared a number of feasibility and design alternatives and engaged leading architects FPPV, to design a simple yet highly efficient building. Detailed staging programmes, with portable temporary accommodation units, were used during critical building periods. This enabled the practitioners to operate at full capacity with minimal disruption to consulting services for the period of the build.

The result is a new and vibrant medical facility, housing 20 practitioners, treatment rooms, and a children’s play area. There is a strong use of natural light throughout the space and the centre has received positive patient feedback.

Following the successful outcome and experience of this development, the client has selected Tandem to deliver a new facility in Cheltenham, where a similar brief has been received. 

Tandem met every expectation and then some we are completely satisfied with their collaborative approach, which worked in well with our practitioners
