Middlemore Hospital Harley Gray Building PC2 Laboratory

This project to build a new laboratory for Middlemore Hospital to replace their existing laboratories commenced in Auckland in November 2015. 

The site is located in a future proof shell on level one of the new Harley Gray building, which itself was completed in 2013. This was a logistically challenging project, as the Leighs team worked within in a live hospital, with 14 operating theatres directly above, and a 24-hour neonatal intensive care unit directly through the other side of the wall.

The project team researched and implemented a system where they fixed some 30,000 concrete anchors into the concrete slab to the underside of the existing live theatres, without causing any noise, vibration or other disruptive forces to the staff operating in the theatres above. They also built a scaffold loading bay platform to a height of 12.0 metres high, so they could lift all materials directly on to the platform to get them into level 1.
