Te Omanga Hospice picked up another award last week at the NZ Commercial Projects Awards - National Category Winner: Altus Window Systems Health.
If you were looking for a project which is a true community, you wouldn’t go any further than the new purpose-built Te Omanga Hospice, in Hutt Valley. The site was constrained due to tree protection and boundary lines. However, a C shaped hospice building with 8 care beds, lounges, kitchen facilities, and an administration area was designed with considerable staff involvement. The buildings design and ability to provide privacy, both internally from circulation areas, and external settled areas, was challenging, but the end result is a credit to all. The grounds were developed by locals, completing the complex and creating a quiet setting, well back off the busy road. This is a most worthy winner of this category.Judges comments
