Concept designs for the $200 million South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute’s home on North Terrace (SAHMRI) have been released. The building will sit alongside the new $1.7 billion home for the Royal Adelaide Hospital, and will be the first completed building within the new City West health precinct.
The $200 million funding is being provided from the Federal Government’s Health and Hospital Fund. The new building will house up to 675 researchers and will be the headquarters for the newly established South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute.
The design team, led by architecture firm Woods Bagot, consulted with the research community, health sector and universities, seeking their ideas and input into the building design. There will be a four-week public engagement process, during which interested parties can comment on the concept design.
