    As the fastest growing DHB in New Zealand, Waitemata DHB is responsible for supporting the training needs of 6,700 staff, to provide high quality patient care to a population of over 570,000 people. With other hospital improvements and expansions recently complete,and 20% population growth expected in the next 10 years, a need for dedicated conference,learning and research facilities was identified.

    Jasmax was commissioned to prepare a masterplan for the cultural, learning and research campus and the subsequent design of the centre. The new campus is located within the existing North Shore Hospital Site, on the shore of Lake Pupuke.

    This wide lakeside boundary allowed for the Learning and Research Centre, as well as a future Marae and He Kamaka Waiora (Maori Health) Whanau Accommodation to all hold prime lakefront positions, maximising view shafts across the lake and toward Rangitoto Island with a well situated northerly aspect.

    The resulting design is in keeping with the ambience of the location and ensures the area is accessible and well utilised by all staff, students and visitors; becoming a nexus for cultural, learning and research activities.

    The new facilities provide:

    A 248 seat auditorium.

    Four flexible shared teaching spaces which can be can be used by different organisations and disciplines.

    Clinical skills teaching laboratory for medical, nursing and other clinical staff.

    Biomechanics laboratory (Auckland University of Technology).

    Open shared spaces in circulation areas which promote informal interchange and meetings.

    Centralised administrative and service areas.

    The flexible design also allows for public hire of the facility for conferences and for hosting key WDHB functions.
