BRIEF Being the global leader in research into Melanoma cancer, Melanoma Institute Australia wanted to meet their duty of care for their patients and staff by providing shaded break out areas for eating, catching up with colleagues and for some time out. The area is a central courtyard and can be seen from many areas within the building including patient waiting areas, corridors and examination rooms. Without shade, this space wasn’t protected from the sun and apart from not being sunsafe was quite hot and unpleasant to use.
OUTCOME Being a corporate sponsor of Melanoma Institute Australia, Greenline was pleased to be able to resolve this issue quickly. We consulted with the staff and developed a design for two structures that would provide maximum protection during the times patrons used the area.
Being a central courtyard, the only access our teams had was through hallways. This meant that the steelwork had to be craned over the building and down into the courtyard.
The feedback from staff has been overwhelmingly positive and the team of researchers, clinicians and professors at Melanoma Institute Australia can now have their meetings, coffee breaks or lunch outside.
