Wellington New Regional Hospital (NRH)New Zealand


The Poche Centre

The Poche Centre is a purpose designed building providing research, teaching, education, consultation and treatment facilities for the Melanoma Institute Australia. The building contains auditoriums, laboratories, consultation and examination areas as well as administrative and car parking facilities.

The fire engineering design that Holmes Fire provided on the project added value through omission of sprinklers in concealed floor spaces, justification of extended travel distances which avoided the need for an additional exit, reduced fire resistance levels of the construction bounding the laboratories, and advocating to the fire brigade for the non-compliant location of the booster connection and pump room.
