Project Details

Benmax has secured the contract to deliver mechanical services for the University of Otago Dental School redevelopment. The NZ$125 million project, to be managed by a Leighs Cockram joint venture, is the largest capital redevelopment the University has ever undertaken.

A new 8,000 sqm clinical services building will connect to the rear of the existing 10,000 sqm Walsh Building, ensuring a tasteful, modern, and energy efficient facility reflecting the already world-class campus setting.

The new facility will house clinical services featuring an innovative surgery design for general practice dentistry, together with a variety of specialist dental clinics in addition to flexible learning spaces, dentistry-specific teaching laboratories, academic accommodation and a new home for the Sir John Walsh Research Institute. Benmax commenced on site in late 2017.
