ESR DNA Facility

Mt Albert, Auckland, NZ – Forensic Laboratory.

When opened recently by the Prime Minister this Forensic DNA Facility was described as having  “state of the art “ air conditioning systems.

Constructed for Environmental Science and Research by Heatwave, it contains many specialist features that enable ESR to produce the best-quality DNA work possible, in a closely controlled internal environment.  These features include:

  • highly filtered and regulated air flow which minimises sample contamination by ensuring that air is clean and is not passed from room to room within the building;
  • differential pressure regimes between separate laboratories used for analysis of different sample types, ensures that there is no chance of cross-contamination between laboratories.

ESR’s work underpins the Health and Justice systems in New Zealand.

Heatwave Service remotely monitors these laboratory temperature and pressure regimes, and the DNA sample freezers, 24 hours per day.

Regular maintenance of the central plant, filters, freezers, and control systems means ESR has an assurance that the International Quality of its work is not threatened.


Biolab Scientific

Mt. Albert, Auckland , NZ – Production clean rooms.

Biolab is New Zealand’s largest and leading provider of scientific instruments and consumables.

Guided by a brief outline Heatwave designed and installed ventilation and air conditioning systems during the refurbishment of their manufacturing facilities.

 Central air conditioning plant, booster fans, high grade filters and specialist controls, provided upgraded “ clean room “ environments for the production of products for the biotechnology , laboratory and medical sectors.


Liggins Institute

Auckland , NZ –Building conversion to a  Research lab.

Committed to world-class  biomedical and clinical research in areas of major health importance, the Liggins Institute required the same commitment to establishing first class building services systems.

Existing air conditioning and ventilation systems were refitted, and specialist systems added  to meet the rigorous demands of the research institute.

This provided Hepa filtered, pressure regulated laboratory cleanrooms.
