WATsonia podiatry


Watsonia Podiatry (Watsonia) is a specialist clinic providing general podiatric treatments, children’s feet consultations and
sports podiatry.

Located in Melbourne’s North, Watsonia aims to offer the best possible care to patients by improving the quality of their health and wellbeing.

The Watsonia team are a fully equipped and friendly group of professionals that apply the latest podiatric treatment methods with state-of-the-art facilities.


Aaron Dri is the head podiatrist at Watsonia and founded the business in 2012. Aaron wanted to achieve a contemporary and clean clinic atmosphere that would serve Watsonia now and well into the future enabling business growth.

As Watsonia needed to close their business for a period of time during the building works, they specified a set open date with patient bookings scheduled to mitigate loss of income for the business.


Watsonia selected Baxter Projects (Baxter) to complete the clinic fit- out having confidence in Baxter’s capabilities and experience in the health and fit-out space. Before any work commenced, a high consideration for Baxter was the surrounding tenants and Watsonia’s set open date.

To ensure the build was complete on time, Baxter set out detailed drawings and a methodical project timeline. Baxter utilised the drawings and timeline in regular consultations with Aaron throughout different stages of the project to make sure he was happy with the progress. This allowed any changes to be swiftly taken care of and ensured Aaron’s vision for Watsonia was being fulfilled.

As there were many intricate and ornate details involved in the fit-
out, it was imperative that Baxter’s Project Manager remained vigilant and thorough to ensure they kept to the strict timeline and on budget. There were also many different trades involved throughout the works to achieve the high-end finish Aaron desired, adding to the complexity of the Project Manager’s job.

Baxter’s Project Manager made sure all contractors adhered to noise restrictions at all times so Watsonia’s neighbours were not disturbed. Any particularly noisy works were completed during business hours only so nearby tenants were not bothered outside of hours.


Baxter helped Watsonia to create a modern and welcoming podiatry clinic that was complete on time for open date and patient bookings.

“Baxter Projects were great to deal with. They made sure there was minimal dust and noise during construction and were professional on site and in the office”.
