2015 marks 10 years of Base and what a great 10 years it has been! This year has been full of celebration, and full of some massive changes for the people of Base. So let’s catch up on what you might have missed!

We couldn’t let our 10 year anniversary pass by without a big celebration. So we got a few of our friends together and celebrated in style, including the biggest Base cake you’ve ever seen (created by our very own architects!).

A New Addition to the Base Team

This year was also a massive one for our Associate Director, Julie as she welcomed into the world her very first baby boy, Ethan! Ethan is a healthy, happy, and handsome little guy, and is always the center of attention when he and Mum decide to pay us a visit.

2015 is full of exciting changes for Base, including a new partnership with Craft Building! Base Architecture and Craft Building Company are award winning firms that have joined forces to build on existing expertise in the specialised medical sector. This specialist team has been forged by highly skilled and qualified architects and builders centered on respect and work quality. Through this collaboration we are able to offer combined experience in medical practice design and build, with an end-to-end service that ensures quality in design and construction within any given space and budget.

Base Medical has its very own website, so make sure you check it out!

Departing from Base

One of the biggest changes to the Base office was the departure of our Associate Director, Kelly. Kelly had been with Base for 5 years, and while we all miss her immensely, we wish her all the best with her new adventures!

New Staff

Our office has been steadily growing over the last year, so there are a few faces you may not know yet.

Dan started with us at the very start of the year as an Architectural Student. Dan is joining us while on his year out from the University of Queensland, and has already proven to be an invaluable asset to the Base team, taking everything we throw his way, no matter the size of the project.

Isabella is also an Architectural Student from Queensland University of Technology. Issy joined us around the middle of the year, but has already become so valuable to our senior architects that there are usually fights to see who can get her to help with their project first!

Steph is an Architectural Graduate from the University of Queensland. With her bubbly personality, eagerness to take on every challenge thrown her way, and experience across a range of different architectural projects, Steph is a perfect fit for our little Base family.

Rachael is the latest addition to the Base team. Rachael is an Architectural Student from the University of Queensland, currently undertaking her Masters of Architecture. She has only been with us since November, but her dedication and enthusiasm for all her projects (including our very own Base Office -Renovation) has already been a massive help to all our architects, especially during the busiest season of the year!

The last addition to our office is this little ball of sunshine! Cha Cha is Base’s official office puppy! She is also in charge of office morale, and takes her job very seriously, making sure to take time to visit everyone in the office whenever she is in. Cha Cha has not been with us for very long, but has brought a lot of life back into our little office.

If you haven’t heard the exciting news yet, we are getting a new office! Don’t worry though, we aren’t moving far. Just next door in fact! So most of our spare time has been spent planning and creating our new work space. It is a bit of a process when you get so many creative minds together, but we already have a few things in mind, and it is set to be an amazing new workspace! We will be posting updates pretty regularly, so make sure you keep up to date with our Instagram and Facebook feeds to see our place as it develops
