Te Huhi Raupō - Taranaki Hospital Renal Unit

A 2023 Healthcare Environment Award winner, the Renal Unit at Taranaki Base Hospital, Te Huhi Rāupo, brings a holistic shift to the care and wellbeing of dialysis patients and their whānau (family). It's a small, standalone building, packing a big climate-conscious punch and shifting the expectations of what is possible in healthcare.

Standing as a global leader in energy efficient and low carbon design, it’s the fourth building internationally to be registered for Zero Carbon certification and the first ever healthcare building set to achieve Zero Energy certification in the world - and proudly one of the first of any building typology in the Southern Hemisphere. 

Attend this webinar to learn about Te Huhi Rāupo's holistic approach to healthcare and how we can evolve the process of co-design on projects to achieve meaningful outcomes.


Presenting Faculty

Adele King
Principal – Healthcare Design Specialist
Warren and Mahoney

Adele co-leads Warren and Mahoney’s care sector. Her vast healthcare project experience has helped to create facilities that have a positive impact on patients, whānau, and staff; spaces that are reassuring, uplifting, and joyful, and that carefully consider peoples’ physical and mental wellbeing. 

With sustainability and wellness as a key focus, she believes how people react to a building and its spaces are just as important as the systems in place to protect the environment. Adele’s ability to deliver these complex projects has seen clients return to work with her on multiple projects.

Passionate about advancing knowledge and the industry, Emily has undertaken a PhD in embodied carbon with the Victoria University of Wellington.
