Te Puhinui: How Innoceil Merges Extraordinary and Compliance in Public Accessways

Puhinui Station is a major Auckland bus and train interchange, a joint venture between McConnell Dowell and Built Environs which was completed at the end of 2021. A solid example of the use of an Innowood product in a public accessway, the vast interior ceiling transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary. This Innowood product met code compliance whilst bringing a sustainable and natural wood feel to the space.

New Zealand requires that both walls and ceilings in commercial buildings (including public accessways and accommodation) perform to the criteria set out in Section 3.4 of our Building Code. Innowood ceiling, linings and screen materials can be manufactured with a specific formulation that ensures this compliance. The fire and smoke inhibitor is built-in to last the life of the product.

This formulation for commercial interiors and access-ways meets the requirements of the code for interior linings. Innowood ceilings were produced in a custom profile for the Puhinui Station Interchange to meet these design and fire requirements.
