The University of Otago Dental Facility is proposed to fulfil unmet clinical demand in the Auckland local community, to increase the breadth of clinical experience for undergraduate and postgraduate dental students and to increase the national visibility of the University’s Faculty of Dentistry.
The facility is a new build located adjacent to CMDHB’s Manukau SuperClinic comprising 32 dental chairs, a 15-workstation simulation environment and other supporting services, the largest dental installation in New Zealand. The landscape surrounding the facility promotes a sense of wellbeing and comfort for patients, staff and visitors while the main entry bridge will take visitors through a canopy of trees once matured.
RCP has provided design management services for this $130 development and are now engaged as project managers for the delivery of this world-class teaching environment.
Completion is due end of January 2020 in time for Semester 1.
