Presented with a greenfield site adjacent to Cessnock Hospital, the client, Ambulance NSW, was keen and a client keen for aesthetic that addressed local characteristics in addition to their priority for an optimal functional layout.


  • An attractive, purpose-built structure which addresses local characteristics
  • A superior open-plan area for off-duty staff combining lounge, kitchen and barbeque
  • Transitional secure zones and a functional flow layout to allow for safe and speedy delivery of medical supplies

“NSW Ambulance has worked very closely with Nicholas Associates Architects to develop the design for the new ambulance station in Bega. The comprehensive design documentation produced has meant that there have been almost no issues to be resolved during construction. As the client this gives us confidence that the project will be delivered on time and on budget.” – Lindsay Farrell – Manager Property Services, NSW Ambulance
