    Joondalup business, Balance Commercial Fit Outs, has won the 2021 Master Builders-Bankwest Excellence in Construction Award - Best Healthcare Building category, for the refurbishment of the GenesisCare Radiation Oncology facility at Ramsay Hollywood Hospital Consulting Centre.

    The excellence award recognises companies which have done an exemplary job in refurbishing and renovating buildings, in specialised project categories such as healthcare or aged care.

    Balance Commercial owners Sharron and John Yates said that the business considered many factors during the project and collaborated with patients and clients. The design and construction has resulted in a warm and welcoming environment for patients.

    Mr and Mrs Yates acknowledge the contribution of the trades and suppliers that worked on the project. Balance Commercial has built trust and strong relationships with its trade partners, having worked with them over many years.

    Young and local artists have been promoted throughout the project, with their art reproduced on large vinyl murals covering the facility's walls and doors.

    The rich history of Hollywood Hospital has also been celebrated as photos of the hospital's past are displayed in the centre's foyer.

    Although COVID-19 has been disruptive, the project was completed four weeks ahead of schedule. 

    GenesisCare and Ramsay Health Care have praised Balance Commercial for their hard work and success.
