Auckland District Health Board - Progress shots

The New A40 Building: A resilient five-story concrete structure with precast concrete and glass cladding designed for immediate post-disaster operation. Notably, it features bespoke triple friction pendulum bearings enhancing seismic resilience. Deep piled foundations (7.5m to 26m) support the structure, while double-height spaces accommodate chiller, generator halls, and a cooling tower enclosure on the roof level. The building is also designed to accommodate a Health Alliance data center in the future.

ADHB Update: Despite initial delays, progress on up to level 1 is now gaining momentum. The intricate nature of the work has contributed to the gradual pace, but the focus remains on delivering high-quality outcomes. Key features include a 5-story concrete structure with in-situ columns and beams, precast flooring, and complex formwork/falsework designs.
