Westlab Pty Ltd was engaged to design and furnish a new laboratory for Western Diagnostic Pathology (WDP). The facility located in Jandakot’s Business Park, Perth, will be one of the largest private pathology laboratories in Western Australia, boasting 6,000 square metres.

Westlab’s laboratory design team worked closely with Western Diagnostic Pathology, PS Structures and Silver Thomas Hanley Architects (STH) to create lean and functional spaces that can stand the test of time. Westlab’s scope of work in this important project includes:

  • Drafting and detailing STH laboratory design
  • 750 linear metres of benching
  • Interchangeable cabinetry
  • Ventilation and biosafety cabinets
  • Chemical, roller and multi-purpose storage systems
  • Delivery and installation

The Jandakot facility will replace Western Diagnostic Pathology’s ageing central laboratory in Myaree and Vetpath’s Specialist veterinary pathology laboratory in Ascot. The new Jandakot laboratory is expected to be in full production by early 2021.

Through Specialist Diagnostic Services (SDS) and its brands – such as Western Diagnostics Pathology and Vetpath, the parent company Healius has become one of Australia’s largest private pathology service providers. Each year, SDS analyses and reports on over 15 million patient cases from samples collected across its Australian collection centres.

PS Structures are proud to have worked in collaboration with Westlab, to successfully deliver the state of the Art Laboratory facility in Jandakot, WA, for Western Diagnostics Pathology.

It has been a pleasure working with Westlab, who has been professional,  knowledgeable and helpful throughout the project.

We look forward to working with Westlab in the future and recommend them as a professional easy to work with subcontractor.
