One end of the Mayo Café on the ground floor of Union House, has now been transformed into a prototype display of the office spaces and work stations staff will use in the Adelaide Health and Medical Sciences building. The mock office fit out is similar to what will be in the AHMS building, and comes fully fitted with examples of the furniture, fittings, floor coverings and décor to provide staff with an insight into the look and feel of the new space before relocation begins in 2017.

Information about other unique and exciting features that will form part of the new facility will also be on display, including level by level floorplans, detailed profiles of the student spaces, learning and teaching facilities, research laboratories, the Adelaide Health Simulation & Skills Centre, and the urban park.

The AHMS project team will be onsite daily between 10am-4pm until Friday 7 October to answer any questions you may have about the AHMS project, however the display will be open to visitors during normal business hours.

If you are unable to attend the Mayo display, visit the AHMS website to find out about what it will look like inside, or contact the AHMS team directly.
