History of the Railway Workshops
Midland Railway Workshops
The clinic is an innovative marriage of the old and the new. It is housed in the beautiful Block 1 Railway workshop which is of heritage significance and enjoys iconic status in Midland.
For almost a century, the Midland Railway workshops provided development and maintenance of the West Australian Rail system. Multifaceted, the workshops were also a training ground for many trades’ people.Its hallmark was said to be its community spirit.
In many respects the business at the clinic will be a continuation of these traditions.
The Midland Railway Workshops were built in the early 20th century to provide maintenance, repair and construction services to the Western Australian Government Railways. They were a dominant economic force and the centre of work and community life in Midland. At their peak the Workshops employed more workers than any other employer in Western Australia. The Workshops employed and trained workers from many trades and the legacy of the Midland Railway Workshops lies beyond the remaining physical fabric to include the rich experiences of those who worked there. Throughout its years of operation from 1904 to 1994, the Workshops was a strong and tight knit community that inspired loyalty amongst its workforce.
The Midland Railway Workshops occupies about 68 hectares and altogether, there were once in excess of 70 buildings and structures on the site. The main buildings were constructed in 1904, and remain largely the same since then. They are listed on the State Register of Heritage Places. The Workshops will be repurposed so they can once again be a driver of the local economy and community, while their unique history is retained.

Gp Super Clinic, Midland Railway Workshops, Midland
Midland, Western Australia, 2009-2012
The Midland Railway Workshops is a world-class collection of early 20th century industrial buildings, built from 1904 and comprising a substantial complex of large-scale buildings, predominantly industrial in style. The workshops closed in 1993, and the place has undergone an extensive program of remediation, and conservation and redevelopment.
Palassis Architects were commissioned to provide expert heritage advice and to design, document and administer a package of new and conservation works to enable the construction of a two-storey medical clinic inside Block 1 of the Workshops, one of the first reuses of a Workshops Block building.
The Clinic is sited within the eastern half of Block 1, which had a temporary cladding which was removed, allowing the Clinic to extend beyond the eastern wall, providing an opportunity for a new contemporary architectural expression, sympathetic to the industrial aesthetic of Block 1. The form and colour of the Clinic suggest a train, moving in and out of the Block.
The form and materials of the Clinic are a contemporary expression of industrial architecture, incorporating steel framing and an industrial cladding. The colours chosen for the external wall panels were guided by paint samples taken from the large collection of industrial machinery housed at the Workshops.
