Welcome to VHBA In Brief

In this issue you can see our latest project milestones and find out how we are:

  • Designing health infrastructure for all Victorians
  • Responding to the Mental Health Royal Commission
  • Shining a spotlight on women in construction

Celebrating healthcare design

Melbourne Design Week runs 17-27 March 2022 and explores how design can be used as a force for 'civic good' and 'making good'.

To celebrate, we’re exploring how the Victorian Health Building Authority aligns with these pillars in designing health facilities to meet the needs of Victorians.

Learn how we're designing for good:
