Capital & Coast District Health Board
The Wellington Hospital ICU Expansion project was a multi-million-dollar upgrade that officially opened on August 1, 2018. Capital & Coast District Health Board (CCDHB) staff are confident it will see fewer non-urgent surgeries postponed, as the ICU department has grown from 18 to 24 bed spaces. The ICU has more than 1,600 admissions each year. Work needed to be completed with strict protocols in place to manage dust and noise to keep services live. This was essential to the lives of the ICU patients, and other critical clinical operational areas.
Extending the intensive care unit at Wellington Hospital from 18 beds to 24, while keeping it clinically clean and operational 24/7, was never going to be easy. The Naylor Love team needed to make substantial alterations in the middle of the existing unit, while it continued to operate.
Judges were impressed that the project team achieved their brief and developed good working relationships with the hospital staff and patients throughout this intense project. This is testimony to their construction practice and communication skills.

Papanui Medical Centre Ltd.
The new Papanui Medical Centre is designed to be a welcoming space. The beautifully landscaped gardens compliment the blend of external cladding used during construction. People are welcomed into a stunning foyer / reception area, then they are seated in the waiting area before being taken through to the consult rooms. These rooms have a warm open feeling, yet lose none of their privacy. The project was completed a month ahead of schedule and this enabled the medical centre to move out of their temporary accommodation.

The Hearing House
A key part of The Hearing House, Auckland project was the need to create a welcoming feel so that deaf children and their parents feel they are coming to a home rather than a clinic. The building has a floor area of 1174m2 to fulfil the client brief of providing a “home away from home”. The uniqueness of the building is not only to be found in its striking design and complimentary blending of the old and new, but also in the clinical acoustic requirements. There was a high degree of onsite quality control to achieve the acoustic standards required for a specialist facility of this nature.

Southern Cross Hospitals Ltd
Stage One of the Southern Cross Hospital Northern Clinic Extension project involved the extension of an existing healthcare centre wing, three storeys high, with an elevated outlook over the Wairau Valley and Hauraki Gulf. The circulation configuration of the existing building was analysed and a new external corridor was suspended at first floor level to connect the new extension into the existing circulation network. An atrium was created between the existing and new buildings that allowed vertical circulation between three levels and connection to the future development.
