Innovative Premises Transform Business for Oliver Woo

Sydney optometrist Dr Oliver Woo and his team have moved into cutting-edge new premises in Eastwood, designed and built by DB Projects.

The new practice is Dr Woo’s third since opening in Eastwood in 1997, with each practice growing in size. This latest premise has been purpose designed for Dr Woo’s business which has a strong focus on contact lens care and myopia management. It features a large pretest room with specialist equipment and three consult rooms.

To create the all new Dr Oliver Woo Optometrist premises, DB Projects transformed what was a neglected tenancy into a serene and professional environment, using materials such as timber, marble, and fabrics.

Meticulous Planning

David Cameron, founder of DB Projects, said the journey began “with meticulous planning, using advanced 3D design software to construct a virtual model” of what Dr Woo’s new practice would look like and how it would function in terms of work-flow and patient/staff movement.

“Every detail, from the retail product displays, pre-test room to the consultation areas, was meticulously scaled and rendered. This digital walkthrough ensured alignment with the client’s vision before construction commenced,” Mr Cameron explained to mivision.

Virtual Reality

Pushing boundaries further, DB Projects introduced virtual reality (VR) technology, which has the effect of immersing clients in a simulated rendition of the finished practice.

“Through VR headsets, clients can explore their proposed space, and interact with the design in a lifelike environment. This approach provides them with a firsthand experience, fostering confidence and enthusiasm for the project,” he said.

Sustainable Sourcing

In line with their commitment to sustainability, DB Projects sourced all materials locally, supporting the community and minimising their environmental footprint. Sustainable building practices, from energy-efficient lighting to eco-friendly materials, were integrated throughout the construction process.

“As construction unfolded, the neglected space underwent a remarkable metamorphosis,” Mr Cameron said.

Dr Woo said he was thrilled by DB Projects’ vision and expertise. “Today, the practice stands as a testament to the transformative power of innovative design and sustainable practices, offering not just healthcare services but also symbolising revitalisation for the community,” he said.

Dr Woo said his patients invariably comment on the warm, relaxing environment of the new practice, “which has helped to improve sales and revenue”.
