University of Sydney, McIntosh Medical Anatomy Laboratory, Darlington Campus

The McIntosh Medical Anatomy tutorial rooms, at The University of Sydney, provides facilities for human bodies and cadavers to be dissected and studied by students of Medicine and Science. In 2008 works were undertaken to transform the five existing dissection spaces into a single modern teaching laboratory to teach future doctors and surgeons detailed anatomical dissection. The works involved the strip out of the existing spaces and a full refit of the premises including the design and installation of integrated surgical style lighting/cameras and LCD displays to capture and display dissection demonstrations carried out by students in real time. The storage of anatomical specimens within the laboratory requires delivery of 100% fresh conditioned air to remove formaldehyde residue. The space is classified as a physical containment 1 laboratory.

AMA provided design, documentation, architectural and project management services from concept planning through to practical completion.
