Soils Group Laboratory - Massey University


Palmerston North, New Zealand

Lab-works Architecture acted as specialist laboratory architects of the refurbishment of the ground floor of the Ag/Hort B building at Massey University in Palmerston North.

The project created modern purpose-built spaces for the integration of a number of disparate laboratories to form the Soils Group. Specialist spaces are incorporated for rock cutting, polishing, storage, rock classification, bio-security and other associated facilities.

The integration of the different laboratories encourages more interaction between groups and high visibility encourages the sharing of information and knowledge. The high quality space, with natural light and efficient systems for environmental control means that the laboratories are comfortable to work in and easy to maintain. For this project, Lab-works Architecture worked in collaboration with Sinclair Knight Mertz.
