We are just finishing a new dental fitout at Rouse Hill. This is our 5th project in Sydney's growing Hills District this year. The job is an excellent example of a ‘standard’ dental fitout.
The client has asked us to design and build a professional looking, cost effective and efficient dental practice. Over the years we have developed and updated a ‘standard specification’ for dental surgery fitouts. We have learnt from client feedback received after completion what is needed, and what is superfluous.
Data and power points are a good example. We specify a certain number of points in each treatment room. Often clients ask for extra points ‘just to be safe’. While we are happy to accommodate, it is important to understand that everything costs money. We work hard to produce the best fitout we can for the lowest price possible.
We often end up ‘down-selling’ rather than ‘up-selling’ because we know from experience that 6 months later when we are talking to the dentist about their new fitout, they will say ‘Yes, you were right, we didn’t really need that’.
We’ve designed and built countless dental and medical practices over the years. We know what you need. Unless there is something you do that is different to the normal operation of a dental practice, the standard specification is the most cost effective and hence profitable solution for your new dental or medical fitout. Look out for photos of our Rouse Hill fitout on our website soon. You will see it looks great.
Every now and then, we are called upon to build ‘showpiece practices’, that are an expression of the personality and success of the owner. I must admit, it’s enjoyable to work with a more relaxed budget and the results are magnificent. But this situation is a rarity. In most cases our role is to build a cost effective, ergonomic, profitable practice that generates the best possible patient outcomes and dentist income.
