Ormiston Road Medical Centre (East Tamaki)
ORMISTON MEDICAL CENTRE (EAST TAMAKI)
Location: East Tamaki
Completion: June 2009
This three level building incorporates laminar flow surgical operating theatres, recovery ward, MRI and dental facilities.
The site utilises chilled water fan coil units for the majority of the air conditioning in office and recovery ward areas. The operating theatres are served by dedicated air handling units with constant airflow fan control and terminal HEPA filtration. Pressure differentials from clean and dirty areas are controlled by the building management system to ensure no cross contamination between environments. High levels of equipment attenuation are also used to ensure quiet operating conditions for the surgeons.
This three level building incorporates laminar flow surgical operating theatres, recovery ward, MRI and dental facilities. The project was undertaken as a full design and build contract. We were involved in early concept design with the Architects and client to ensure an economic, functional and high quality solution was delivered.
Being a surgical centre meant that air quality and operating conditions were of paramount importance.
