About this Project

Key features of the new East Wing:

  • A new Emergency Department (twice as large as the current ED) and Intensive Care Unit
  • A rooftop helipad, which will mean faster, safer patient transfers
  • Purpose-built maternity facilities and delivery suite, a new postnatal ward and neonatal unit
  • Upgraded laboratory and radiology services
  • A dedicated tupapaku facility for the viewing of the deceased before leaving the hospital

Seismic features of the project include:

  • Option investigation for base isolation vs viscous dampers;
  • Junction detailing for bridges and to existing buildings;
  • Review and removal of fall risk from surrounding buildings onto both IL4 Buildings and supporting services;
  • Replacement and duplication of IT hubs;
  • Construction of an energy centre to remove services for IL4 buildings from earthquake-vulnerable tunnels;
  • Examination and inclusion of additional plant to support resilience in existing buildings (notably removal of dependence on steam and existing boilers).
