The $37 million Warren Health Service has received two nationally-recognised awards on the cusp of its one-year anniversary.

Project architect Silver Thomas Hanley received first honours with a Good Design Award for their work on the redevelopment, which is the highest honour nationally for design and innovation.

As part of the announcement, the Good Design Award judging panel said the building was an asset to its regional environment that inspired confidence in the services provided within it.

Following the July win, the Warren Health Service received an Australian Institute of Project Management Achievement Award at the weekend.

The Building Management Works team within the Department of Finance was the 2019 WA winner for the building’s Community Service and/or Development award.

BMW senior project officer Jiapei Ho paid special tribute to WA Country Health Service South West staff Alan James, Tiarna Munns and Jodie Omodei for their dedication and support to the project team over its five-year lifespan.

“The success of this project is a reflection of the people involved, their can-do attitudes and their focus on getting things right the first time,” she said.

WACHS South West regional director Kerry Winsor congratulated all the staff involved in the planning and construction of the Warren Health Service.

“These awards reflect the hard work of our staff involved and serve as a timely reminder of the excellent facility we have at Warren and the role it has played in attracting more clinical staff to the area,” she said.

“While those involved in the project deserve our congratulations, it is the residents of the Warren community who are benefiting every day from this magnificent facility.”
