North Shore Medical Centre is a multi-tenancy medical centre on a 6000m² site within North Shore town centre in Townsville.

Made up of 2 stages in two separate buildings, the 2000m² Centre is made up of 10 tenancies that varies in size from 450m² to 55m².

Tenancies include a General Practice, Sports Physiologist, Pathology, X-Ray, Dentist, Physiotherapist and Veterinarian.

Covered external verandahs link the tenancies and provides direct access to amenities and carpark.

External colours and finishes were selected to provide a fresh contemporary appearance to complement the form of the building.

The use of passive design principles including sunshading screens, low-e glass and verandahs assist in reducing energy consumption.

North Shore Medical Practice was also designed by 8i Architects.
