Auckland BioSciences exports animal-derived serum and plasma to the global veterinary heath and scientific industries.

For this project at it’s North Shore base, they engaged Haydn & Rollett to create a lab-grade, state-of-the-art new cleanroom. While construction itself was fairly straightforward, the nature of the facility meant there was an unusually keen focus on cleanliness.

All edges had to be sloped for ease of cleaning and to mitigate dust, for instance, and the project team was required to take breaks outside the room because of the risk of food crumbs smuggling bacteria into the pristine space. In short, it was a very different project from the typical Haydn & Rollett industrial build, but with one common feature: the execution of detailing was expected to be spot-on.
