SISTER COMPANY, LAB-WORKS ARCHITECTURE WINS THREE AWARDS FOR THE DESIGN OF UNIVERSITY OF OTAGO’S MELLOR LABORATORIES


MELLOR LABORATORIES

Lab-works Architecture, in collaboration with Parker Warburton Team Architects, are proud winners of two NZIA 2019 Southern Architecture Awards in the Education and Resene Colour Award categories. In addition Lab-works Architecture also received a Merit Award under the 2019 Property Council of New Zealand, Property Industry Awards.

The successful redevelopment of the former 1970's chemistry building has brought modern design and technical excellence together to provide a safe, flexible teaching environment catering for large numbers of students. Drawing on modern learning and research approaches we have transformed the once closed space into an environment encouraging collaboration and connectivity between students.   

This award-winning science precinct is on par with the best of what's available internationally and is flexible enough to meet students’ needs well into the future.

TRACE METAL CLEAN ROOM

As part of the University of Otago’s refurbishment of the Science Precinct for the Department of Chemistry and the Centre for Trace Element Analysis, a new ISO Class 5 clean room facility was required for the Centre for Trace Element Analysis.

The facility was specifically developed for the analysis of the metallic elements and their isotopes for wide-ranging applications in the earth, environmental, climate, planetary, archaeological and biomedical sciences. As the facility was being created as a space for the analysis of metallic elements, we were given the interesting yet rare challenge of eliminating metal from the facility.

The end result is a specialist space for world-class analysis and research.

The end result is University of Otago’s Mellor Laboratories, an award-winning facility that exceeded the client’s expectations and now provides specialist space for world-class analysis and research.

This award-winning science precinct is on par with the best of what's available internationally and is flexible enough to meet students’ needs well into the future.
