Fisher & Paykel Healthcare Building 3


Project Details:

Location: East Tamaki

Completion: October 2012

Value: $17,000,000

The 35,000m2 single level building is divided into office spaces also incorporating model shops plus laboratory facilities and a production clean room approved by the American FDA.


The site utilises a vast number of systems, the majority of the office spaces are served by Variable Air Volume and Fan Coil Unit systems. The production clean room is a pressure controlled space served by seven large Air Handling Units with a capacity of over 100m3/s.

There is also the provision of 12°C and 20°C process water circuits and a compressed air ring main for future connection of production machinery.

The building has been fitted with high efficiency chillers with a combined cooling capacity of 4.6MW.

The production facility is equipped with a building management system as well as an environmental monitoring system enabling strict product quality control.

The Project:

This large scale project was undertaken in a relatively short time frame so the use of 3D Revit drawings was critical to the project success. This enabled coordinated plans to be produced early so a substantial amount of fabrication could occur offsite before the structure was in place.

The bulk of the ductwork was manufactured on site due to its size which reduced handling and also meant we could accommodate any required site changes.
