True National Capacity
This year, 2020, marks over 18 years in business for Medifit Design & Construct.
Medifit was first to market in March 2002, and has operated exclusively in the healthcare space designing, building and fitting out Australian dental, medical, day surgeries and allied health practices. With more than 600 projects delivered across every state of Australia, it is likely that there is a Medifit practice near you.
Whilst Medifit head office and the design studio are in Perth, it may surprise readers that 80% of Medifit’s construction and interior fitout work has been completed in the Eastern States.
From the early days, the company embraced the concept of building local and employed state based Project Managers to manage practice construction and fitout in their respective states, with quality standards and procedures handed down from head office. To further control all projects they have developed a proprietary templating system that acts as a control mechanism on all projects ensuring speed, accuracy and quality are at the forefront. This approach has resulted in an agility that has stood the test of time.
Design and documentation are completed on Perth time and this time difference provides a surprising benefit. Practitioners busy caring for patients in the Eastern States are able to contact the Medifit team in Perth to discuss design options at the end of their working day via phone call or video conferencing.
The recent global pandemic has created significant challenges for many companies and providers but Medifit’s robust & proven systems has enabled the company to continue operations (with the required covid safe work measures in place). All Medifit sites nationally have continued operations during this period. The model has been so successful that relationships with the original state project managers endure to this day.
