Waipapa is New Zealand’s largest ever public hospital project – and the most resilient.
As a base-isolated Importance Level 4 facility, Waipapa is designed to remain fully operational and able to provide acute clinical services immediately post-disaster.

The 62,000m² state-of-the-art facility, completed in 2020, was delivered by Chow:Hill Architects in collaboration with Warren & Mahoney and Thinc Health (known collectively as Katoa Health Design). Waipapa is comprised of 401 in-patient beds, 12 operating theatres, a 48-bed ICU, two six-level inpatient ward blocks, a radiology and emergency department, purpose-designed children’s facilities, and rooftop helipad.

During the upcoming 2021 AHDC event # 6, Darryl Carey will share experience and lessons on three key aspects of this project:

  • Project Governance & Delivery
  • Innovative Inpatient Wards
  • Resilient Design – especially seismic and passive fire.

Daryl Carey, our speaker for this event is an experienced, award-winning architect, Health Planner and Lead Design consultant. Darryl is a Director at Chow:Hill and founding chair of the New Zealand Health Design Council.

Please stay on the line after the conclusion of the presentation and the Q&A session, as we will be providing a networking opportunity for members to share thoughts and meet other fellow Health Design professionals.
