Hawkins Construction adds a floor to LabPLUS at Auckland Hospital

Hawkins Construction aims to deliver high quality projects that their clients can be proud of, while providing a great experience along the way. They achieve this by being forward thinking in the way they go about their work, challenging how things are done and finding better ways to ensure success. It’s no surprise that they were contracted to add a new top floor to the busy LabPLUS laboratories building at Auckland City Hospital. This project was not without its challenges, including the laboratory’s requirement to continue full operations during construction.
To help ensure the success of the project, Hawkins Construction called on the experience of North Shore Scaffolding. The goal was to create an effective outer scaffolding shell for the construction teams inside, allowing the existing lab floors to safely continue their work. The structural integrity of the scaffolding was critical, but so too were the set-up and pack-down times.
“This was the first time we’ve worked with Hawkins Construction and it was a pleasure to provide them with the solution they required. We used the Layher Allround scaffolding system. It’s innovative connector technology provides quick assembly and superior strength while using less scaffolding material. Layher’s advantages over conventional scaffolding are invaluable on challenging projects like these.” Clifton Webb, Managing Director, North Shore Scaffolding
