Maben Group collaborated with the Australian Prostate Centre (APC) for a second time to deliver their state-of-the-art Australian Medical Robotics Academy(AMRA).

The Robotic Surgical Training Facility is equipped with the latest robotics simulators, designed to train the surgeons of tomorrow in a safe environment before entering live surgery.

Maben Group worked closely with the APC team on a Construction Management Contract to demolish and refurbish 500sqm Level 7 of 14-20 Blackwood Street, North Melbourne.

The facility includes two simulated operating theatres, two mentor suites, a centralised collaboration room, and a multi-use break-out space.

Access restrictions added to the complexity of the project, with larger items such as the large robotic equipment requiring to be craned into the building through the 3rd floor fa├žade.

Maben completed the project in August 2019 on a 6-month construction programme.
