MacDonald Industries Were Privileged to be Involved With HomeGround

HomeGround is the new building of Auckland City Mission, Te Tāpui Atawhai. This purpose-built space is a thriving central city community hub offering a wide range of services and facilities for people in desperate need. This beautiful new space includes 80 permanent apartment homes for people sleeping rough, a shared rooftop garden, community spaces, multi-disciplinary health centre and state-of-the-art addiction withdrawal services facilities.

“What that means is for individuals who have suffered traumas in the past and are still carrying them, there’s a spaciousness, there’s a light and there’s a gentleness to the tones that enables them to experience a sense of safety and belonging,” says Jacqui Dillon, GM – Health and Social Services, Auckland City Mission.

MacDonald Industries are proud to have been involved with this project and supplied Franke high security basins and toilets and Delabie water controls for the 30 patient rooms in the medical detox unit.

Sanitaryware for mental health environments can be a challenge, and require specially designed products that are robust yet designed to look homelike, providing dignity for patients. MacDonald Industries Technical Consultants worked closely with the architect and main contractors to delivery this specialist bathroom solution.
