"A more open, modern, safe and culturally appropriate facility for forensic mental health patients."

This community focused health project involved significant reconfiguration of the three existing mental health wards within the Henry Rongomau Bennett Centre at Waikato Hospital, with the addition of new whare, kokiri and secure entry buildings integrated with outdoor activity areas.  The carefully designed project delivery strategy involved considerable planning and management of construction stages and patient decanting.

Chow:Hill worked closely with the joint providers of the service, Waikato DHB and local iwi Tainui, to understand and interpret different approaches to care and rehabilitation of mental health patients.
