Red Cross NSW Headquarters
Buildcorp & Australian Red Cross
The Australian Red Cross Blood NSW Headquarters and Laboratory is Australia’s largest blood processing centre.
The building is designed to provide functional, adaptable conditions that staff enjoy working in. The flexible planning incorporates state of the art technology and caters to current operational requirements and the evolving needs of the business for the next 30 years.
Laboratory, administrative and public wings are connected by way of a large, light-filled atrium and a delicately detailed timber spiral staircase. The building provides a controlled environment with a compact layout for efficient use of services and core layouts.
The building is also designed to be ‘disaster proof’ so it can operate under critical conditions when blood products are essential. It has the ability to operate for a four-day period without the need for an external services supply.
