Recent Projects

Manukau Health Park

Pacific Commissioning’s role: ICA

The brand new Manukau Health Park will give Manukau’s growing population a high quality centre to support their health and wellbeing. 

Part of Middlemore Hospital, the community benefits are numerous, including reducing pressure on Middlemore, improving patient experience with culturally appropriate spaces and providing staff with the technology and accessibility they need to their job. 

Once complete and in full use, the 4 Green Star health hub will add almost 150,000 additional outpatient appointments per year and accommodate up to 450 new full time employees.

Acute Mental Health Unit, Middlemore (Tiaho Mai)

Pacific Commissioning’s role: Independent Commissioning Agent (ICA)

Designed as a safe environment where people can stay for short periods until they can safely access other mental health services, this purpose built 24-hour residential unit offers both high and low dependency units. As with any primary health care facility, it’s absolutely crucial that services are fully commissioned, with back up generation functioning before the building is handed over.

The commissioning process on this site was particularly interesting in terms of building security and the fire protection system. One of the requirements was to ensure that patients can’t tamper with the fire system, while still providing full functionality. Tiaho Mai means “the light that comes from the moon and the stars - shine here", a fitting name for a place which helps people see the light at the end of a dark time. 

Barrington Sofrana

One of Auckland’s iconic waterfront buildings, the Category Two Historic Barrington Building opened in 1905 as a warehouse to serve Auckland’s increasingly busy port. Transformed into retail and office spaces, this four floor building now serves Auckland’s thriving CBD.

The façade of this majestic building has been maintained, while inside has had a completely new refit. A new steel and glass lift is both functional (the previous lift hadn’t been for some time) and provides a sculptural element that echoes elements used in the original construction. 

A Green Star building, the facilities incorporate more fresh air, with a focus on monitoring power and water usage. Rainwater is also recycled to power some of the facilities.
