DVA Open Arms Counselling Suites Applecross

In collaboration with our partners interstate Hunter Mason, OPRA Projects were engaged as part of a national roll-out to deliver four specialist counselling centre fit-outs, totalling 2,200sqm and located across three states:

• Melbourne, VIC
• Ipswich, QLD
• Rockingham, WA
• Applecross, WA

The delivery of new counselling centres will enhance DVA’s capability to “Maintain and enhance the physical wellbeing and quality of life of veterans and their dependants through health and other care services that promote early intervention, prevention and treatment”.

The Applecross branch consisted of a new spec fit-out with breakout rooms, soundproof consult rooms, workstation, boardroom and reception.

Mechanical delays with shop drawings meant four weeks anticipated delay, which then reduced to 1 week. Which meant heavy coordination of trades on-site was needed, with stringent COVID-19 practices put in place, to ensure everyone’s safety to finish the project to specification and deadline.
